As newcomers to the Northen Kentucky region, we have been doing our best to visit area attractions in order to best know where we might take house guests from out of town. Waiting for a rainy day, we finally got our chance to see the Cincinnati Museum Center. This museum was such an unexpected surprise. Having grown children, we spent most of our time in the Cincinnati side, saving the Natural History/Children's Museum for last. This museum was so well put together, so interesting, offered a large variety of exhibits specific to the history of Cincinnati, and had many many volunteers proudly and happily assisting with questions and exhibit explanations. We LOVED it. This is a fascinating use of a 1930's art deco stucture and train station. The museum ramps were actually once the roads the taxis and cars used to get in and out of the old station. Towards the end of the Cincinnati side of the museum is a replica of an old steamboat docked in the Ohio River abutting an old time Cincinnati street front~complete with shopkeepers and a live street musician. We would without a doubt return with any of our friends visiting us here in Newport, Kentucky. The children's Museum looked great, but we pretty much just walked through. There was a bat cave and an old ice cave that undoubtedly would have been wonderful for the imagination of small children. As retired school teachers, we could only guess that it must be a popluar place for school trips. There was also an IMAX theater. The price is reasonable, there is also a food court, and the entrance is so pretty. Don't miss this :)
