When visiting Cincinnati be sure to take in Music Hall. It is a beautiful piece of history. The architecture is exquisite. If you are lucky enough to attend a performance, you won't be disappointed...the acoustics are first class!

The hall is historic and beautiful.The auditorium area is stunning! A must see is the preserved wreath that was on Abraham Lincoln's tomb on the first floor. The auditorium has magnificent acoustics. I was there for a wedding with someone playing piano and it was glorious. There's also a beautiful park across the street with a gazebo. It makes one... More

A relative got married and had the reception at the Cincinnati Music Hall. It was elegant and special. The reception was held on the stage and it was fantastic.

I LOVE Music Hall. It's old, but classic. The architecture and chandlier alone are worth the admission price. The acoustics are wonderful and CSO is wonderful. If you get a chance to visit, do it! A true Cincinnati icon!

Cincinnati Music Hall is a beautiful building outside and inside. The acoustics are wonderful. My Family loves go there to see the shows and Cincinnati Symphony Pop's Orchestra.

A beautiful building, accessible with that formal feeling of being somewhere special. Everyone should visit. I recommend the first balcony in the front rows but be careful of obstructed views (the supporting columns that can block your view so you have to lean over toward your neighbor to see around). The floor is a problem if people arrive late and... More

I am an opera fan and I saw a few operas here. The acoustics are wonderful. The building obviously has a lot of history. If you plan on attending a show be sure to get there early to find parking spot, and don't leave your valuables in the car.

Love music hall and if you get a chance to take a tour it is very interesting. the area does present some challenges as it is being revitalized and parking is not as convenient as one would hope.

It's a beautiful music hall that needs to be renovated. They have maybe close to a thousand seats crammed in that they could take out and make everyone a lot more comfortable.
