Lucky Cat Museum

2511 Essex Pl, Cincinnati, OH 45206


 You've probably seen the iconic cats sitting upright waving or "beckoning" with one arm. In Japan, these are symbolic of good luck, especially financially, and are known as Maneki Neko. The owner of this museum has started a collection of them, and as it grew, she needed to keep expanding. Now that her collection has reached over one thousand, she has opened it up for all others to see.  It is only open three hours per day, 5 days a week.  This is because she still needs to work her regular job to keep the museum free.
