“Great place for the family”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

You could spend a few hours or many days exploring this place. The childrens museum is really great and a perfect place for a winter day. Parking was a bit of a challenge but once inside it was worth it, while we didn't get to go to the IMAX I hear it is really nice.

“Best museum in the midwest”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Excellent museum with "museums within a museum". There is a Natural History Museum which is both educational and fun (and has a huge, walk through cave). There is a History Museum and a Childrens Museum, both are outstanding. Don't forget to visit the IMAX while you are there! Plan to spend the day if you have the time!

“Lots of Interesting Things to See”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

There are lots of Interesting things to see at the museum center. Various events come and go, but even when you don't know what's there, it's always been safe for me to stop for something interesting and family friendly! The only downside is that it is often a little pricey.

“Worth every penny if you have small children and visit the Duke children's museum.”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

I find the prices high its best to have a pass that way you're getting discounts at other museums/ attractions. It's perfect for children.

“Great family venue...”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We have had their premium pass for several years mainly to host the grandchildren. Starting with the Children's museum they have grown to like the other venues as well, especially the dinosaurs in the Natural History Museum and the trains in the Cincinnati History Museum. We like the flexibility of the multi-center pass so we could visit each of the exhibits as the kids wanted to. We have also gone as adults for the Cincinnati History Museum and events like the Dead Sea Scrolls. One of the greatest places you can find on a rainy day. The reciprocal with other museums add to the value.
