“Great train display”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

This museum was a nice place to visit when in Cincinnati. We went through the history museum and experienced the omnimax theatre . The old station is a step back in history experience to see how a city changes over time with a great train display. Children would love the Christmas train display.

“Some interesting stuff but not great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Not much for the kids. Some interesting items of local flavor but nothing too special. Most interesting to me was displays about how some companies transitioned from what they were doing to production for the war effort.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We saw the dead sea scrolls, then wandered the other parts of the gallery. The historical society gives free tours throughout the day. After the galleries and the tour we headed up to the third floor where you can learn about trains. They also have ample information about trains and expeditions on classic trains. We had a great time.

“Not amused”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Duke Energy should stick to what they think they know. Supplying power to their customers. Children are easily amused, but grownups know Duke is about money and lots of it.

“Love Omnimax!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is always a joy to go to. The films are well done and a treat for guests who have not experienced Omnimax.
