Beautiful historic building (old train station) that houses three distinct museums: Childrens' Museum, Natural History Museum, and the Cincinnati History Museum. Fun galore with kids at the Children's Museum. The cave inside the Natural History Museum is fun to explore. And awesome IMAX films are…

One of the largest museums in the country and house in historic Union Central train station... it is divided in to Children’s, Science and History wings... you could spend a couple of days here and not see everything! Highly recommend!

3 museums and an Omnimax Theater (surround screen) give variety to your experience. Also a free railroad museum and viewing area. Historic building was the point of arrival and departure for many WWII military personnel.
