Formerly known as the Cincinnati Union Terminal, this was a beautiful railroad station originally. After the decline in the rail transport trend, this was turned into an important landmark housing a number of libraries, museums, theatres, etc. At present, it is the location of the very famous museum that also puts up travelling exhibitions.

The fantastic Art Deco style architecture and design is what still remains intact. The very uncommon half dome style tunnel design is still interesting to all tourists. The best part about this vintage design is the addition of murals that was also done quite a number of years ago but still stands successful in keeping up with its charm. The murals include those of piano making, radio broadcasting, roof manufacture, tanning, airplane and parts manufacture, ink making, laundry machinery manufacture, meat packing, drug and chemical processing, printing and publishing, foundry products operation, sheet steel making, soap making, etc. these were all added by the respective industries and developed by German American artist Winold Reiss who transformed all these into mosaic plates that still adorn the walls of the building. This place is thus one important part of the very urban state of Ohio.

Cincinnati Museum Center At Union Terminal, Cincinnati Reviews - Write a Review

  • The kids museum is fantastic. There are lots of different settings for imaginative play (vet, supermarket, diner etc). There is a large water area with smocks to protect clothes from splashing, a plastic ball room with all sorts of contraptions for getting the balls around and even a separate area for smaller kids that has toys, several fun play environments and a little room for nursing or reading quietly. There is something for everyone and we always leave happy & exhausted.

  • I've been to the Museum Center many times and it is always a pleasant experience. Over the last year's it is gotten a little pricey to go to all of the venues at the same time but each exhibit is well thought through and the presenters at the exhibits do a wonderful job of telling they're stories. I have always especially liked the Cincinnati Riverside exhibit with what appears to be a real riverboat that you can board and a real 1800 Cincinnati Street where you can see the merchants and the printers and The Butchers.

  • Love this place. Fun and informative, in a historic building. As of the time of this review they are renovating the building, repairing some serious wear and tear, and yet they still have as much of the building open as possible. I can't wait to see it looking like new once the work is done.

  • Right now most of the building is under some must needed construction. The children's museum is still open but that is about it. I am really looking forward to the reopening but I'm not sure when that is... Just google it! When it does reopen I know it will be top notch and I will be buying a pass.

  • Under heavy construction right now. Almost the entire museum is closed to the public. But what isn't is great. The children's museum is fun, even for adults. The rotating exhibits are always interesting. If you can excuse the mess, you can see some fantastic stuff.
