  1. Does the Museum Center still have the Model train layout. Will be coming down 15 mar for the national archery tournament and looking to visit after I get done shootin Sat .If so what time is the museum open to.

  2. Hi John, The train is on display over the holidays and I don’t believe they intend to have it open year round. It is currently not open for viewing and it will not be open while you’re here. If you want to learn more about Cincinnati Museum Center, check out their site here:

    I hope you enjoy your visit!
