As I have said before, I am always on the lookout for FREE activities for my family. One activity that we have taken advantage of in the past are the FREE Friday's at The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal.
These are usually in the summer and offer free admission for everyone from 4-8pm. This year, the dates for FREE Friday's are: June 3rd, July 8th, August 5th and September 9th.
This year Free Fridays include the Museum of Natural History & Science, Cincinnati History Museum and Duke Energy Children’s Museum. Cleopatra, OMNIMAX, and parking are extra.
Parking is $6 per vehicle ($4 per vehicle after 4:30pm), and OMNIMAX Theater is $7.50 adults, $6.50 seniors and $5.50 children (ages 3-12). Cleopatra is Adult: $23, Child: $15, Senior: $19 Member Adult: $14, Member Child: $10
The Cincy Museum Center if a REALLY FUN place to go, and my girls especially love the Children's Museum. It is made up of four areas, which are: Kid's Town, Little Sprouts Farm, Energy Zone, and The Woods. Plus, there is a Water Play area that all children love, (parents-not so much!).
And if you need snacks while you're there, no worries. They've got you covered! The food court offers two options: Track One Pizza that serves pizza slices and bread sticks; and the Gateway Cafe, which offers sandwiches, hamburgers and hotdogs, soup, salads and more. Food is generally available during museum hours. Drink machines and snack machines are available in the concourse area of the Rotunda.Enjoy the Rookwood Ice Cream Parlor for something sweet. It's open until 5pm on Friday's.
So mark your calendars now and plan to visit the Museum Center this summer...and I'm sure you'll see us there, too!
