After a two-and-a-half year restoration period at Union Terminal, The Museum of Natural History and Science is back!
Two new exhibits are waiting for you at Cincinnati Museum Center’s Museum of Natural History and Science: Dinosaur Hall and Science Interactives Gallery.
Calling all dinosaur lovers! Dinosaur Hall is the spot for you! With 6 massive dinosaur specimens on display, this area is something to behold!
In addition to being amazed by the dinosaurs, you’ll find educational placards and interactive learning tools as well. And be sure to watch the walls of Dinosaur Hall for a special treat!
Science Interactives Gallery:
The fun doesn’t stop there! Walk down the ramp to find The Science Interactives Gallery – your spot for hands on science fun.
This area is a science lovers playground. Learn how a pulley works (below) or challenge your friends and family to a game of tug of war. They’ve got “gizmos and gadgets aplenty”!
And for those of you looking for a great date night, don’t overlook The Museum of Natural History and Science. There’s plenty to do for just the adults in the room!

Seriously, where else can you fly through a Jurassic environment (a virtual reality Birdly experience!) on date night?!
And they’re not done yet! Cincinnati Museum Center reports that they’ll be opening “more exhibits in the months and years to come, including the Cave and its 500 feet of twists and turns, the brand-new Space Gallery and the beloved Cincinnati in Motion. The next phase of exhibits will open later this year, in the spring and fall of 2019.”
