Beautiful home converted into a museum. The collection is a bit eclectic because it's based on the holdings of a family. Emphasis is on Cincinnati artists, rightfully so, with good holdings of Dutch and French 19th century, esp. Fontainebleu and Barbizon. Beautifully displayed.

This is a peaceful and educational way to spend an afternoon. I think parking for visitors is always free under the building, Sundays are free admission. Check out the Lindner Family Restaurant onsite, it is wonderful. I will return!

This place is a National Historic Landmark. Here you can find some impressive works by some of the Old masters, and some impressive furniture. Love the Statue out the front of Abe Lincoln by George Grey Barnard.
