The Duke Energy Children’s Museum will be reopening on May 4 and we have tickets to give away!
As you may know, the Children’s Museum has been closed to allow for the ongoing restoration efforts at Union Terminal. In the process of addressing decades of water penetration from the plaza into the mezzanine level below, portions of the Children’s Museum became active construction zones and they made the decision to temporarily close the Children’s Museum.
And Cincinnati Museum Center is thrilled to announce that the Duke Energy Children’s Museum will reopen on May 4, 2018!
Will anything be different?
The entire Children’s Museum is getting a fresh coat of paint and new flooring is being installed throughout. Much-played with exhibits are also undergoing repairs. They are installing new netting around the Energy Zone, adding new animal specimens in Animal Spot, installing a new crane in Construction Zone, building a new Metro bus in Kids’ Town, adding new stools in the Diner, and installing a new slide in The Woods. All of your favorite animals from the aquarium and Nature’s Trading Post will also be reintroduced when the Children’s Museum reopens.
When will the other museums reopen?
The restoration will be complete in November 2018. The OMNIMAX Theater, Duke Energy Holiday Trains and new food and retail experiences will reopen in November 2018. Permanent exhibit and gallery spaces within the Museum of Natural History & Science and Cincinnati History Museum will open in phases as they are built, beginning in November 2018.
