The Cincinnati Musuem is in the Union Terminal Station, once a very important and busy railway station. Nowadays only one passenger train runs through it. The rest of the area houses the museum of Natural History and Science and an Omnimax theater. Kids will love the children's musuem. As you walk into it, you can't miss the giant mastodon skeleton. There is a glacier exhibit that takes you back 19,000 years into the Ice Age of the Ohio Valley. You can explore a recreated Kentucky limestone cave, the largest man-made cave in the United States, complete with underground waterfalls, streams and fossils. Kids can learn all about the human body and get a major lesson in recycling.

We visited this museuim back in the spring and it is amazing! Our favorite was the children's museum, our 2 year old had so much fun. We ended up evacuating because their was a fire, but we can't wait to go back and finish our visit and see everything else they have. The building is beautiful and they have an Omnimax theatre too.

This museum houses the Museum of Natural History, the Cincinnati Museum and the CHildrens museum as well as the AMTRACK and the Omnimax. YOu can get a multiple museum pass to save money. The museums are great and the staff is always ready to help you find something. They all have great exhibits and the building is beautiful as well. Make sure you attend a show at the Omnimax!

From the Childrens Museum to the Natural History Museum, to the Omnimax to the seasonal exhibits, the Museum center in Cincinnati is top notch. Inside the old Union Terminal bulding, it's apeice of Cincinnati History Itself.

The museum center provides the Cincinnati area with a large amount of history, both in the history museum and the natural history museum. The cave in the natural history museum is awesome.

The Children's Museum at the Museum Center is great for families. There is so much for the kids to do, from cooking and serving meals in a diner to exploring caves and treehouses. You can spend hours in here!

Pros: Lots for kids to do, inexpensive

I love the history of the place and how it has kept it's old look, but updated conveniences.
