Planning your Visit to the Lucky Cat Museum

The Lucky Cat Museum is housed in the Essex Studios in Cincinnati, OH.  The Essex was once Hamilton Tailoring Company. With the 1990's decline of America's textile industry, the decision was made to convert the factory into artist spaces. (Personally I love that snaps and pins were ground in and are still visible in the hallway floors.)
The Lucky Cat Museum recently moved into a larger space with air conditioning, located on the first floor.

The Lucky Cat Museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 3:00pm -6:00pm. The tour generally lasts thirty to forty-five minutes, depending on the visitor's interests.

The Museum is always open during the Essex Studios Artwalks (held four to five times a year). The Artwalks last 6:00pm to 10:00pm and many of the resident artists as well as guest artists offer their creations for sale. Beverages and light snacks are available in the various studios as well as food trucks. It's the best time to see a wide range of art styles and methods and meet the artists behind the work!

Admission is FREE, however donations are always greatly appreciated!
