Planning your Visit to the Lucky Cat Museum


Essex Studios
2511 Essex Place #150
Cincinnati, OH 45206

The Lucky Cat Museum is housed in the Essex Studios in Cincinnati, OH.  The Essex building began in the 1920's as the Herschede Clock factory. In the 1950's it became Hamilton Tailoring Company. (You can still see snaps and pins ground into the flooring of the halls upstairs). With the 1990's decline of America's textile industry, the decision was made to convert the factory into artist spaces. In 2012, the museum moved downstairs into a room, AC furnished space.


3:00PM - 6:00PM

We can occassionally open outside of our
regular business hours by appointment.

Guests generally spend thirty to forty-five minutes.

Admission is FREE, however donations are always greatly appreciated!

Because cats. That's why.
