Cincinnati Museum Center At Union Terminal - Review
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
The Children’s Museum is absolutely perfect for my almost two year old boy! My mother treated us to the family pass (the top tier one). I love that we’re able to bring up to four kids and that I can give the pass to a grandparent so they can take Jude and my husband and I don’t have to be present. There are a million things to do in this place - constructuon site, water, balls, woodsy-themed playground, and a closed off section meant for the really little ones. And you can tell that everything was so well thought out - there are lessons and skills being developed. This place is great year round since it’s indoors. That’s another huge plus! Also, it’s big enough that my kid won’t get bored anytime soon.
Union terminal is an absolutely beautiful building. A monument of a bygone era. Walking up to it makes you think of all the people who have traveled through here in the past. We visited near the tail end of their renovation and what we saw was impressive. I am anxiously awaiting going back when everything is fully open.
The new kids area is phenomenal! Little kids area is contained and has a variety of things to do. The rest is open and diverse: water area, big kid playground that is unique, construction area that appeals to all ages, teeth/dental area that is intriguing to kids, art area, large ball area with unusual ways to play with the balls and more! My kids didn't want to leave and I had to drag both kids away with promises to come back soon.
I am giving the museum very high marks for a place being remodeled. Upon entering I did not recognize the rotunda. My daughter met me outside and we took the escalator on the left down 2 levels to the Duke Energy Children's Museum. Across from the entrance is is a cafe area with tables where you can sit, relax & eat. The Children's Museum is a perfect place for fun if you have children 12 & under. I did a previous review of the Duke Energy Children's Museum. My grandson did not want to leave. I am excited to see the remodel of the Museum Center when it is completed. My rating before the remodel was 5 stars. I anticipate that it can only get better
Fun to go for an hour or even a whole day! Had loads of fun! Great for field trips and the kids! Redoing most exhibits, but it will look better once renovations are done. Fun to go up to Tower A and observe Union Terminal and get a history lesson. Children’s “museum” is not a museum, but more of a glorified playground, I wish there was more actual learning in the children’s museum, but still a great place to drop your kids for, well, ever.
