Irwin M. Krohn Conservatory
The conservatory is the city's horticultural gem with more than 3,500 plant species from across the world in themed houses that include a desert and a tropical rainforest.
Taft Museum of Art
This museum displays a small but impressive collection of paintings by old masters like Rembrandt, Whistler and Goya, as well as sculptures and Chinese porcelains.
This square is at the heart of the Cincinnati city centre, with an impressive fountain that was cast in Munich and erected in Cincinnati in 1871. Various seasonal events are held in the square throughout the year.
Carew Tower and Observation Deck
This Art Deco building from the 1930s is one of Cincinnati's tallest buildings. A National Historic Landmark, it contains shops, restaurants and offices, but the highlight is the panoramic views over the city from the observatory on the 49th floor.
American Sign Museum
This unique museum displays all kinds of signs and the colourful, brightly lit collections are a feast for the eyes. Guided tours are recommended to bring to life the stories behind the signs and, on weekdays, they include a visit to the on-site neon shop for a demonstration of neon signmaking.
