The Taft Museum of Art is known as one of the finest small art museums in America. A National Historic Landmark built in about 1820, the Taft is home to nearly 700 works of art, including European and American master paintings; Chinese porcelains; and European decorative arts. The mission of the Taft Museum of Art is to preserve, exhibit and interpret its unique collections and historic house in a way that exemplifies artistic, intellectual and professional standards of the highest quality; fosters the pleasure and understanding of art; embraces diverse audiences; maximizes its human, financial and physical resources; and enhances the cultural, educational and economic climates of our city and region. The museum reopened in 2004 after extensive renovations. The expansion doubled the size with a new special exhibitions gallery, redesigned gardens, parking, and museum shop.
