Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal

Every important city in the United States has one thing in common: each has a unique and extensive museum center. The city of Cincinnati is no exception in this regard, with the one exception being that its main museum center is the historic art-deco Union Terminal Train Station built from 1928-1933. 

Visitors have to step into the Union Terminal to understand just how remarkable it is. When it was built in 1933 as a train station, it featured the largest half-dome in the world and today it remains the largest in the Western hemisphere. 

Aside from the impressive architecture, the Cincinnati Museum Center has some truly impressive exhibits, including:

  1. Cincinnati History Museum 
  2. Omnimax Theater 
  3. Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust and Humanity Center
  4. Natural History and Science
  5. Rolling Featured Exhibits
  6. Children’s Museum 

With an immensely friendly staff, local coffee in the food court, and great exhibits, The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal is certainly a must-see in The Queen City.
