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 2016, the museum moved downstairs into a room, AC furnished space.
