Spent the day with 7 year old, 14 year old, 2 parents and grandma. Something for everyone here. Parking $6. All museums+ Imax for $18 each was very reasonable. We had awesome encounters with staff sharing info about exhibits in fun ways.

I am in love with this building and no matter how busy this place gets I learn something new.

The first time I came to Union Terminal was in the middle of the night in the summer. It was beautiful and left an impression on me.

My daughter is still young enough to enjoy the Children's museum but old enough to be interested in the rest of the museum. If only the food was a little better it would be perfect.

Thank hatchje

I came here for the Cincinnati Exhibit and the Omnimax theater and ironically it was National Train Day and Union Terminal is still an operating train station today. When we went to the Cincinnati Exhibit it was fantastic! It felt like you were in old time Cincinnati! The Omnimax theater was great to! A great place to come to witness history!

This is actually a series of five different museums all located in a renovated train station from the turn-of-the-century. You can select the museum she want to see them pay for those, or get an all museum pass. Parking is on the premises and they run a shuttle tram back-and-forth for those who have to walk very far. The project of saving the railroad station was well worth the money and the effort

For about the same cost as a family's admission to a 3D movie at a garish Cincinnati megaplex, a family can instead spend a fantastic day at the Museum Center. It truly is a great experience for adults and children alike. Housed in the fantastic Union Terminal (a jewel of Art Deco architecture, skillfully restored), the museums are excellent, boasting something for everyone and a crew of kind and knowledgable docents. The multi-museum pass is a money saver (you'll want to traverse at least two of the three museums) and a few more bucks gets you into the amazing OMNIMAX theater. You also must go up Tower A, where the local railroad society oversees the old rail yard lookout. Simply put, go to the Museum Center!!
