Museum of Natural History and Science Tips (4)

Museum of Natural History and Science

This is another great museum, with too many excellent features to include here (with only five photos, I cannot show them all). It's definitely worth your time and money.

Here are a fine collection of fossils, some nice dioramas of ancient life, two simulated caves, and a wealth of information about how Ohio's territory and wildlife evolved. Both entertaining and educational, this is not to be missed.

Cincinnati History Museum

Here is anything you'd want to know about this great city. To begin, check out Cincinnati in Motion. This huge model shows the city in all its glory, with moving trains. A sight to behold. Then on to Cincinnati at War, a pictoral story of the city's role in World War II. Then, best of all, the Public Landing. Here, one can visit a reproduction, complete with living guides, of the city as it was in the late Antebellum period. In between, visit the other exhibits and chat up a few guides. This is one of the finest museums of its kind.

Cincinnati Museum Center and Union Terminal

Before the 1930's, there were 7 railroad lines and 5 seperate railway stations in the basin area West of downtown.

When the Cincinnati Union Terminal was completed, several hundred miles of tracks had been rerouted to consolidate in this one location, which originally allowed for access by train, bus, taxi, and private automobile without overlapping. The peak of activity was during the 1940's.

In 1990, the terminal was rescued, and redesignated the Cincinnati Museum Center, incorporating the Cincinnati Historical Society Library and Museum (founded 1831), Cincinnati Museum of Natural History and Science (1870), an Omnimax theater, and more recently a Children’s Museum

I enjoyed the mosaic murials along the walls. Just walking around the inside of the half dome structure gives you a feeling of nostalgia.
