The Hauck House Museum is an Italianate mansion located in the Dayton Street Historic District in the Old West End Neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. It was built in 1870.[1] The Hauck House has a striking façade of carved stone, and the spacious rooms have intricately painted ceilings, floors of parquet wood in elaborate patterns, marble mantels, and massive woodwork.

John (Johann) Hauck (1828–1896) was a German immigrant who established a prosperous Cincinnati brewery.[2] The museum was established to promote an understanding of daily life and customs in late 19th-century urban Cincinnati through the preservation and interpretation of the Hauck House.

The residence had operated as a historic house museum but is no longer opened to the public. It is available for rental for events.
