Most everyone recognizes Maneki Neko (Japan's "Lucky Cat"). Asian restaurants often have the happy waving cat greeting customers. The Cincinnati Lucky Cat Museum has over 1,000 of these fortunate felines on display. Some are waving, some are not. Some are lefties, some righties, and some use both paws to invite luck. One interesting display features original Lucky Cat pieces from artists around the world. There are antiques, toys, designer vinyl and modern exhibits. Whether you love cats, Asian culture, or just oddball museums, this is a good place to "get lucky." Plus, peruse the gift shop.
