  • Remodel looks nice. Chairs downstairs in the new eating area are not size inclusive. Vending machines would not work properly. New additions to natural history Museum look nice, but they're not enough to replace what was lost. Same with Cincinnati side. Ride service to/from parking lot is REALLY helpful, but not consistently available.
  • Loved this place!!! So much history! We took a free tour of the building! Wow! Thanks to Don the volunteer who showed us around! You will love learning about all the “3” s in the building! We expected more out of the Natural Science and History part, Children ‘s museum should not be missed if you bring children!!! It was great!!! People in Cincinnati and area you don’t want to miss seeing this beautiful building or anyone from anywhere will enjoy this best building!!
