Cincinnati Museum Center reviews
The mezzanine is so amazing! I was obsessed with it. The colors were brilliant. Leaving some of the old signage was brilliant. The Omnimax was stupendous!

I had a great visit to the Museum Centre, there is so much to see. The science and history museums were both great and these are included in the normal ticket, especially liked the Neil Armstrong...

We went here for the wedding reception of my wife’s cousin. What a place for it! We had a great time and especially enjoyed the museum being open during cocktail time. The kids got to run around and play on the mechanical exhibits and one of my daughters and I got lost in the Ice Age. There were some amazing and well-put-together visuals for adults and kids. As for the wedding reception itself, the place was beautiful, spacious, and very clean and modern. It was a wonderful place to celebrate a wedding.
Came here with my 22 mo old and my 3.5 year old. Was nervous that they would find any of it interesting and was pleasantly surprised. They LOVED it. The Children’s Museum is excellent. The Art Deco architecture is world class. It’s a really fun place and I’m glad we spent our afternoon here. We had a little over 2 hours and had to run through the last bit. I wish we’d of had more time because our boys were obsessed.
