    The DaVinci exhibit was very nice but due to the remodeling there is nothing else to do here unless you have kids. A return trip when it's finished is definitely on my list.

    Such a great example of Art Deco at its finest. Oh and world class museums and IMAX. Try catching an organ concert in there. Awesome.

    A gorgeous historic facility that houses 3 museums, a special exhibit gallery, and an Omnimax theatre (IMAX in a dome).

    The history here is fantastic. Catch an Omnimax film and visit the Cincinnati history museum. I also did the High Steel tour.

    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.

    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.

    This was once the site of Lincoln Park, which featured boats on a beautiful lake. By the 1920s it was filled with the homeless, so city leaders decided to close the park and build Union Terminal here. Read more

    What you see today is only a portion of the original building. The entire train concourse/waiting area was demolished in 1973. Passengers entered through the hallway where the Omnimax is today. Read more

    The Rookwood Tea Room (now an ice cream shop) is in the front of the rotunda to the right as you enter the building. The floor and walls are covered in Rookwood Tile. It housed the USO during WWII. Read more

    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.

    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 It features digital scans of primary historical documents in Lincoln's hand, or signed by him.

    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.
