This is by far one of my favorite places. From the amazing art deco design to the awesome museums, there's something for everyone. If it's open, the control room in Tower A is very fun, especially if you're a train enthusiast.

Housed in Cincinnati Union Terminal, one of the best old Art Deco style train stations from days gone by. Looks like an old RCA semi-circle radio from outside. Well preserved. Great museum. Usually has rotating exhibits. Excellent OmniMax big screen theater inside too.

We took our 2 year old to the children's musuem and he had a blast. There are many activities for kids of all ages. It is also nice that the musuem has a separate area for smaller children. I would highly recommend the children's musuem.

WE just went for the Viking exhibit and there is not much else to see right now. I always try to use AAA when I can as it often seems to offer the best discount.
