The Children’s Museum reopens May 4!

Breaking news: The Children’s Museum reopens May 4!

The Children’s Museum temporarily closed in November 2017 to accommodate construction activity on the mezzanine level as part of the effort to restore Union Terminal. During this temporary closure, the Museum Center has taken advantage of the opportunity to refresh the Children’s Museum. The entire museum is getting a fresh coat of paint and new flooring is being installed throughout.


Much-played-with exhibits are also undergoing repairs. There will be new netting around the Energy Zone, new animal specimens in Animal Spot, a new crane in Construction Zone, 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!

Mark you calendars for May 4! After a long winter, Cincinnati parents and kids can once again get their weekly Story Tree Time fix, rediscover favorite exhibits and reconnect with this only-in-Cincinnati treasure.
