Originally built as a train station in 1933, Cincinnati Museum Center now houses three museums, an OMNIMAX Theater, special exhibitions and more.
You could spend a day here! Good for families, couples, dates, and even those going alone.
Take the elevator for a quicker way to holiday junction.
Best museum ever
Took the kids, didn't tell them is was history related, they enjoyed themselves, when pointed out that they learned a little history they were still intrigued.
There are three museums, an omnimax and a train station all in this fantastic historic building.
Haven't been yet but looking forward to it.
Come see the Mistletones as they carol throughout the Museum Center, Wednesday-Sunday through Christmas Eve. Also, check out A Christmas Carol (abridged) in Rickart Auditorium- free to the public!
This is the perfect place to learn about history.
Holiday junction, is free until Christmas Day if you are a duke energy customer. Call them for your confirmation code before you come. didn't call before you came? call now, it's not too late. :-)
The princess Diana memorabilia tour is coming to the museum after the dinosaurs exhibit leaves, from February to August 2014. Get ready!!
Had a good time here & learned a lot!
On really crowded days, be sure to take a sedative before entering the Children's Museum..
Surprisingly good pizza and they have Starbucks!
Wonderful building with good museums. Friendly staffs and/or volunteers all around made it a very interactive experience for the kids on the History of Cincinnati side.
Check out the models of Cincinnati in the 1940s.
Cave is worth the trip
Watch flight of the butterflies! It's awesome!
A great experience for the entire family. Take the time to discover this gem of Cincinnati.
Bring a jacket, lower level exhibits are chilly.
Wow! Neat place.
The vending machines take credit cards
Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit attendance is increasing. Last weekend several times sold out. Get tickets in advance & go now before the crush if all the last minute crunch.
Makes for a perfect rainy afternoon family time!
The check in desk was usually dormant during the day but became a hub of activity every evening as porters checked travelers in for overnight trains. The large murals can now be found at CVG.
See the bat show !!!!!!
The people working here were very nice. They need 2do something about their lines. It seems that we spent half of our time waiting in line. Also, there needs 2B more handicap parking near the doors.
During the busy holiday season come as soon as the museum opens or earlier (10am) to ensure a close parking spot and a short line at the ticket counter.
The museum offers an online exhibition to commemorate the life and career of Abraham Lincoln. It features digital scans of primary historical documents in Lincoln's hand, or signed by him.
Marvin at Track One Pizza was handling money then food. He also coughed into his hand before touching my plate. Gross.
Eat before you come.. Lol
As usual, this museum never disappoints!
Great way to learn and beat the heat!!
Must see for photo ops - great architecture. IMAX is worth going for too.
Featuring room-sized frescos, gold coins, bronze & marble sculptures, hundreds of priceless artifacts & the largest collection of body casts ever on display – all frozen in time. Through August 12.
Amtak opens at 11 but the mean Lady hounds you Creepy
The rotunda tour is well worth the time! And it's FREE!
The Duke Energy Holiday Trains are a Cincinnati tradition. Their new home at Museum Center affords a lot more room to the display and includes the neighboring Holiday Junction area.
My son was not even an inch too tall and they wouldn't let him ride on the train on Christmas Eve...
Worst holiday display in Cincinnati. Two hours to see train display with one train moving. Should have stayed at Duke Energy building. Save a trip!
Don't go see the train exhibit today. Madness!!!!
Allow yourself ample time to see everything
If u take ur children to the water play area in the childrens musuem don't get pissy if u get wet!!

Don't wait to take children. At six months they will enjoy the Little Peeps area which is reserved for those under 18 months
Two next weekend is the last for the remarkable Cleopatra exhibit. It is the best exhibit ever in Cincinnati. See it!
