Museums & Attractions

Cincinnati Art Museum

Cincinnati Art Museum

"One of the oldest arts institutions in the United States, the Cincinnati Art Museum has a rich collection of more than sixty thousand works of art, spanning six thousand years." AND from the eyes of a parent, the Cincinnati Art Museum is so much more. It is an inspiring and educational playground that has even the smallest of kids appreciating masterpieces of art, fun prizes, and being creative. Read More »

Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden

The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is literally one of the top zoos in the nation. To this day, I do not think that my kids have seen the entire zoo. It is huge, beautiful, and always alive with interactive shows, feeding stations, and new exhibits. Read More »

Museum of Natural History and Science

The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal is home to three of the greatest Museums in the world - The Duke Energy Children's Museum, The Cincinnati History Museum, and The Museum of Natural History and Science. It is truly impossible to enjoy all three museums in one day, let alone one to it's fullest, but be sure to see the "Caves" and the giant "Sandbox" at this museum. Read More »

Cincinnati History Museum

The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal is home to three of the greatest Museums in the world - The Duke Energy Children's Museum, The Cincinnati History Museum, and The Museum of Natural History and Science. There is literally not enough time in one day to visit all three museums, but be sure to go into this museum to see the amazing model train display of Cincinnati back in the 40's, as well as go downstairs to play with the interactive wooden toy boats traveling the "Little Miami River"... oh, and walk through the life-size steam boat. There is nothing boring about this "History" Museum and it is extremely kid-friendly. Read More »

Lebanon Mason Monroe Railroad

LM&M's website says "Experience a nostalgic train ride on the Lebanon Mason Monroe (LM&M) Railroad through Warren County in Southwestern, Ohio. The LM&M invites you to reminisce and capture moments with family." LM&M offers several themed train rides year round, but when we heard Thomas the Tank Engine was coming, we bought tickets online for our family of four, as well as Nana & Papa, and truly enjoyed the magic when beloved characters come to life.

Krohn Conservatory

A friend of mine once said, "If you are looking for a little warmth in winter, go to the Krohn Conservatory." We have enjoyed many winter and summer days here, walking through this gorgeous huge glass green-house filled with all kinds of plants from Florida palm trees to bonzi and orchids. It's the perfect place to leave your winter jacket at the door and take in a breathe of fresh air mixed with the perfumes of nature. Read More »

EnterTrainment Junction

EnterTrainment Junction is like an amusement park for train lovers young and old. The entrance ticket price feels a little like an amusement park too, but this is a must-see attraction/museum for anyone living in or visiting Cincinnati. From our first step in past the ticket agent, we were in awe at the amazing minature world they had created for us to walk through and explore as we answered their printed scavenger hunt questions.

Coney Island

Coney Island's website says, "Coney Island is unique as it not only was the name of the New York resort that was the center of the amusement park universe in the early part of the century, but also the name of the famed amusement park in Cincinnati, OH, which is regarded by many as one of the best operated amusement parks in history." Yes, it's a big, fun, and unforgettable amusement park where you can enjoy a day in their Sunlite pool (the world’s largest recirculating swimming pool), ride over 20 classic family and kiddie rides, or enjoy live music.
