Things to do in Cincinnati

  • Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal Cincinnati, Ohio
    The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal is housed in the original Cincinnati Union Terminal in the Queensgate neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. When the railroad business began to fall, the terminal was converted to other uses that include theaters, a library and museums. The main architects of the huge building were Steward Wagner and Alfred T. Felheimer, with assistance from architects Roland Wank and Paul Phillippe Cret, although Cret is usually the architect credited with the conversion since he was the main architect responsible for the art deco style of the structure. The rotunda showcases the biggest semi-dome in the western hemisphere and is 180 feet wide and 106 feet high. Winold Riss, the German artist was commissioned to design and construct the dual 22 foot high by 110 feet long colored mosaic murals that show the history of the city in the rotunda, as well as two murals for the departing and arriving train boards, the two murals in the baggage lobby, the huge world map mural that is seen at the back of the concourse and 14 smaller murals for the train concourse that depicts local industries. Winold took about two years to design and make the murals, but unfortunately, quite a few were removed and taken to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport to be exhibited there. The 14 industries that were chosen to be shown in the smaller murals were; the Philip Carey Co. for roof manufacturing, the Baldwin Piano Co. for piano making, the Cincinnati Milling Machine for machine tools manufacture, the Crosley Broadcasting Corp for radio broadcasting, the Proctor & Gamble co. for soap making, the American Oak Leather Co. for tanning, the Ault & Weiborg Corp. for ink making, the Aeronca Aircraft Co. for airplane & parts manufacture, the American Rolling Mills and Newport Rolling Mill for sheet steel making, American Laundry Machine for laundry-machinery manufacture, Kahn's Meat Packing for meat packing, Cincinnati Milling Machine for foundry products operations, William S. Merrill Co. for drug & chemical processing and the US Playing Card Co. and Champion Paper Co. for printing and publishing.  In 1978, Columbus, Ohio real estate developer group Joseph Skilken converted the terminal into a huge shopping complex that was called the "Land of Oz" and hoped to become a family entertainment and shopping complex that would include restaurants, shopping areas, roller skating rink and bowling alleys. Almost $20 million was spent in the renovations to get the complex ready, also hoping that it would help revitalize the complex and downtown area, and get the community coming back to downtown. The extravaganza opening happened in August, 1980, after taking almost two years to convert the building into major shopping and entertaining sites, with 40 tenants occupying the stores. It would bring in about 8000 visitors a day, and eventually hold 54 tenants, but then the recession of the early 1980s arrived and dashed everyone's plans, and the first tenant left in 1981. By the next year, the number of remaining tenants had fallen to 21; however, the Cincinnati Museum of Health, Science & Industry opened there in hopes that it would help the remainder survive the crisis. In 1984, the Land of Oz closed, with only Loehmann's clothing store still located there until it too closed in 1985; although the passenger drop off ramps that were located under the rotunda would be used as a weekend flea market for many years after. The terminal would then stay empty for almost another 10 years before the voters of Hamilton County passed a bond levy to keep the terminal from being destroyed and to convert it into a city museum center. Former city mayor, Jerry Springer, was one of the biggest supporters of the new venture, which opened in 1990 and today is home to six exemplary centers of art, science and culture. They are; the Cincinnati History Museum, Duke Energy Children's Museum, Museum of Natural History & Science, Cincinnati Historical Society Library and the Robert D. Lindner Family Omnimax Theater. In 1991, the marvelous renovations would entice Amtrak to bring back service to the terminal with the three times weekly, Cardinal. The Cincinnati Railroad Club is located in the Tower A above the station, and allows visitors to view the wonderful museum that they have set up. 

  • Contemporary Arts Center
    The Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, Ohio is a pioneering contemporary art museum and since it is a non-collecting museum can give its attention to the newest developments in performance art, new media, architecture, painting, sculpture and photography. Devoted to displaying art that has just been created, it contains the works of numerous artists that have become famous since placing their works in the museum, like Andy Warhol and others early in their marvelous careers. The center started in 1939 as the Modern Art Society, and one of the first facilities in the nation that was devoted to displaying contemporary art, and its initial exhibition called, Modern Paintings from Cincinnati Collectors would be shown in the basement of the Cincinnati Art Museum. In 1964, they would move into the Women's Exchange Building in downtown, and in 1990, they would have a very controversial series of photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe that would go to trial and then become a movie in 2000, called Dirty Pictures. The center moved into its own free-standing home in 2003, the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art that was designed by Zaha Hadid.  The center's goal is to create a complex link between art and life, with unique connections made through contemporary art, and they are providing a medium to reflect and talk, where the public can meet with the scholars, artists and other people involved in contemporary issues. They have committed themselves and their venue to becoming and staying the place where opportunity transcends boundaries, by becoming a facilitator, leader and neighbor for all the community to come and enjoy as well as learn about new ideas in history, art and visions.

  • Cincinnati Art MuseumCincinnati Art Museum Cincinnati, Ohio
    The Cincinnati Art Museum is now one of the oldest art museums in the nation, founded in 1881 as the first purposely constructed art museum west of the Alleghenies and housing more than 60,000 beautiful works of art, making it one of the most inclusive collections in the Midwest. When the museum founders were deciding on a place to locate their marvelous museum, they had a number of places available including; downtown Cincinnati on Washington Square, Burnett Woods or Eden Park. Charles West the biggest benefactor of the project voted on Eden Park, which became the inevitable location, and the Romanesque-revival structure was designed by local architect, James W. McLaughlin and opened in 1886. During its fabulous 125 year history, the building has been growing with additions and major renovations that have certainly changed its looks. A large expansion in 2003, created the Cincinnati Wing that would hold a permanent art display that was created for the city by its own artists that began in 1788. The new wing contains 15 galleries that span 18,000 square feet and house 400 items. The Odoardo Fantachiotti angels are two of the biggest creations in the collection; created by the artist for the main altar of St. Peter in Chains Cathedral in the latter 1840s. These were some of the first European sculptures to come to the city's museum, which also acquired works by Robert Scott Duncanson Mitchell and Rammelsberg, the city best 19th century furniture manufacturers, Frank Duveneck, a large case clock by Luman Watson and the Rookwood Pottery. By the beginning of this century, the collection had grown to more than 60,000 pieces and is now the biggest in the state. It increased its ties with the city by opening the new wing, which was the first permanent exhibit of a city's art history in the country, and in 2003, the magnanimous gift by the Lois and Richard Rosenthal Foundation enabled the museum to offer free admission. Some of the magnificent paintings housed here include; Jorge Ingles, Frank Duveneck, Sandro Botticelli, Picasso, Matteo di Giovannia, Frans Hals, Claude Monet, Aert Vander Neer, Pissarro, Strozzi, Mattia Preti, Corot and Renoir.   

  •  Duke Energy Children's Museum
    The Duke Energy Children's Museum, which had been the Cinergy Children's Museum, belongs to the museum complex located in the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, and opened in 1998, moving from its downtown locale when that building was flooded by the Ohio River. The museum contains 8 exciting and special exhibit spaces and is designed specifically for children from a couple of weeks old to the older tweeners. There are a number of specially designed displays for children aged 8 to 12 and include the Woods, which is a huge indoor play set that has an outdoor theme.

In their Animal Spot there are many exhibits, with some comparing various animal bones with their skin types, life size tortoise shells, elephant skulls, a saltwater tank and a freshwater tank full of beautiful and exotic fish. The Energy Zone has some really great displays like a treadmill you can run on, fill a container or the favorite, using a vacuum cleaner to get balls into a large bucket; which once full will ring a bell and the balls drop. Children Just Like Me has numerous interesting displays like the one that has 8 children from various places around the world, where you can learn about their toys, culture or clothes where you might try putting on a sari, put on your own puppet show or dance in a tutu. There is also a wonderful place full of exhibits for children ages 4 to 8, and finally the exhibits and displays that are perfect for infants and toddlers since the "older" children don't think they are cool any longer and don't bother with them. The museum is located on a single level and offer parents the perfect opportunity to watch their child or children interact with others; or at least learn to interact which might be a good prelude to entering them in school or changing from a school.

  • William Howard Taft National Historic SiteWilliam Howard Taft National Historic Site Cincinnati, Ohio
    The William Howard Taft National Historic Site is now a National Historic Site in Cincinnati, Ohio that was established in 1969 and where the President of the United States and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court William Howard Taft was born in 1857, and where he lived for the first quarter of a century of his life. The house is situated in the Mount Auburn Historic district, the one-time affluent suburb of the city's downtown area, that now is just inside the city's limits. It is a marvelous two story Greek revival house constructed in 1835, and a beautiful reminder of what wealthy people could live in to escape the heat, smog and crowded conditions of the city. William's father, Alfonso Taft, came to the city from the state of Vermont in 1839 to start a law practice and moved into the house in 1851, after paying $10,000 for it. Sitting on two acres, the neighborhood was a popular place for upper-class people to come and live, far removed from the dirt and crime in the city. The Taft house, compared to those surrounding it was considered to be modest, while the other houses were more Georgian revival, Italianate or Second Empire. Alfonso's wife Fanny passed on just moving into the house in 1852, and two years later, he married a schoolteacher from Massachusetts named Louise Torrey. Louise would give birth to their second child, William in 1857, in the first floor nursery in the rear ell. The Tafts had six children living with them in the magnificent house, two by Fanny and four by Louise. It was constantly being used for social gatherings since Alfonso was an early supporter of the Republican party in the city. One of the most well known was the future President of the United States, James A. Garfield, and rugs usually were rolled up in the parlor to make room for dancing and fun. Family activities were usually done in the library, with Alfonso being a great book collector. William lived here until 1874, when he would attend Yale University, and the house would often be empty as Alfonso became part of the Ulysses S. Grant administration. The Taft couple would lease the house in 1889 and move to California for health reasons, while William had been married three years earlier and the remainder of the Taft children had grown up and left. In May of 1891, Alfonso passed on in San Diego, California and buried in Cincinnati, with the tenants of the house allowing the funeral to be held there. Louise would sell the house in 1899 to Judge Albert C. Thompson and go home to her family in Millbury, Massachusetts. Five years later, the front porch was taken off the house and replaced with a single story porch, with other remodeling done by adding a conservatory and demolishing the outbuildings. When Thompson passed on, the house was sold by his widow to Colonel Ernest H. Ruffner in 1912, and after he passed on, it would be sold by his daughter. In 1937, the William Howard Taft Memorial Association to purchase the property, although without the support of the Taft family. During the 1940s, the house was used for apartment rentals, and finally in 1953, Charles Phelps Taft II started the movement to purchase the house which they eventually did for $35,000. In 1961, it was in such desperate need of repairs that it would take $92,500 to fix it and it was made a National Historic Landmark in 1964.

  • National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
    The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is the historical museum located in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio that informs the public about the Underground Railroad that was located here so many years ago. The center commemorates all the wonderful efforts by many people across the United States and Canada that continued to abolish the human enslavement and secure freedom for all people, just like the Constitution of the United States states. Considered one of the newer types of museums of conscience that has grown in this nation, along with the Museum of Tolerance, the National Civil Rights Museum and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the center gives informative lessons on the continued struggle for freedom in the past, today and the future as it tries to challenge visitors to think about the meaning of freedom in their lives, and to remember how and why this country was started and the struggles it had to endure to achieve its independence. By being located here, it attributes the important role that the city had, where thousands of slaves escaped to freedom by crossing the Ohio River, during that historical moment of the Underground Railroad. The center was ten years in the planning and cost $110 million to open in 2004 and spans 158,000 square feet of marvelous informative spaces. Designed by the Boora Architects of Portland, Oregon along with the Blackburn Architects of Indianapolis, the three pavilions celebrate perseverance, courage and cooperation. The exterior is of travertine stone from Tivoli, Italy on the east and west facades and copper panels on the north and south. The late Walter Blackburn stated that the undulating qualities of the structure personifies the fields and rivers that the escaping slaves had to cross to gain their freedom. At the time, First Lady Laura Bush, Muhammad Ali and Oprah Winfrey attended the auspicious groundbreaking in June of 2002.  There is so much to see and learn here, that it is one of those places that every American should visit, if not to understand a little bit more about the terrible effects that happened during those years, but to see and perceived the terrible conditions that the majority of the African American had to endure. There is a slave pen, perhaps the most emphatic artifact in the center, the is a 21 by 30 foot two story slave pen that was constructed in 1830 to house slaves on their way to auction. The movie, Armistead, that was shown some years back is another poignant example of the horrible conditions that men, women and children had to live through to get here, and then be put into conditions sometimes worse. It is a very sad story, that must be told, shown and prayerfully, understood so that we can move forward and forget, or at least, try to forget that period, that despicable period in our history, much like the way we treated the Native Americans, the Chinese, well, almost every ethnic group that came to this country, except, the Anglo-Saxon white protestants. But even then, it is different for the wealthy of that group and the poor, and that inequality is at the base, or the root of much of this evil. Well worth the trip though, if you love America and the freedoms that it stands for today.

  • Harriet Beecher Stowe HouseHarriet Beecher Stowe House Cincinnati, Ohio
    Harriet Beecher Stowe was an American abolitionist and writer, in fact, her novel, "Uncle Tom's Cabin" showcased the life of African Americans living in slavery; which reached millions of people in this country and Great Britain, infusing the political issue that existed during the 1850s. It soon became an influential novel and play in this country and the United Kingdom, energizing anti-slavery sentiment and people in the north, but yet angering the same in the south. When Abraham Lincoln met her, he supposedly said, "So you're the little lady who started this great war!" Harriet was born in Litchfield, Connecticut in 1811, the daughter of an outspoken and religious leader, Lyman Beecher and Roxana Foote, a very religious woman that passed on when Harriet was only four years old. The Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Cincinnati, Ohio is the old house that her father, Lyman moved to when he came to the Lane Seminary to teach. He was a preacher that was very affected by the pro-slavery riots that happened in the city during 1834, and Harriet came to live there until she was married. The house is open for tours and is a historical and cultural site that highlights Harriet's life, the underground railroad and the Lane Seminary; as well as African American history. During 1833, when she lived in Cincinnati, there was a terrible outbreak of influenza that soon became an epidemic, and to avoid the sickness, Harriet went to Washington, Kentucky to visit the Marshall Key family, whose daughter was a student at the Lane Seminary. Slave auctions were often held in Washington, and it is recorded that Mr. Key took Harriet to one of these and the results were deeply embedded in her mind. In 1850, the Fugitive Slave law was passed by Congress, that prohibited helping slaves escape from their masters or owners, and this moved Harriet so much that she had to write her disapproval on paper, which became the first installment of Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1851, appearing in the antislavery journal, the National Era. At the time, Harriet was 40 years old and had seven children, and her article started the debate and fire that spread across this country and the ocean to the United Kingdom; and as Lincoln stated, perhaps a war. Harriet passed on in 1896, at age 85, in Hartford, Connecticut, next door to Mark Twain, where she had lived the last 23 years of her life.

  • Taft Museum of ArtTaft Museum of Art Cincinnati, Ohio
    The Taft Museum of Art is the house museum located in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, and is the home of Charles Phelps Taft, the half brother to William Howard Taft, who accepted his presidential nomination here in 1908. The magnificent villa was constructed on the outer limits of Cincinnati in 1820 for Martin Baum, and then the home of Nicholas Longworth. Soon after, David Stinton came to live here with his daughter, Anna, who would marry Charles Phelps Taft, and they lived there from 1873 until 1929. The Tafts were ardent art collectors, and soon had turned their Greek revival house into a museum; which they eventually donated to the people of the city of Cincinnati in 1927, full of artworks. Their deed of gift stated, "We desire to devote our collection of pictures, porcelains and other works of art to the people of Cincinnati in such a manner that they may be readily available for all." This spectacular collection contains 19th century American paintings, along with the famous murals by Robert Duncanson, European old master paintings that house works by Adriaen van Ostade, Frans Hals, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres and Thomas Gainsborough. The splendid galleries in the beautiful house includes sculptures, furniture, Chinese porcelains, Limoges enamels, watches and European decorative arts. Other featured works include; Virgin and Child by Abbey of Saint-Denis from 1260-1280; the Cobbler's Apprentice by Frank Duveneck in 1877; At the Piano by James Abbott McNeill Whistler in 1858-1859; Song of the Talking Wire by Henry Farny in 1904; Europa and the Bull by J. M. W. Turner in 1840-1850; and Portrait of a Man Rising from his Chair by Rembrandt van Rijin in 1633. After getting a brand new facelift in 2004, the museum added a new gift shop, performance space named Luther Hall and the Carl H. Lindner Family Cafe.

  • Hauck House MuseumHauck House Museum Cincinnati, Ohio
    The Hauck House Museum is a marvelous Italianate mansion set in Dayton Street Historic district in the Old West End neighborhood of the city of Cincinnati, Ohio with a gorgeous facade of carved stone. The large rooms inside has beautifully painted ceilings, elaborate intricate woodworks, parquet floors in unique patterns and marble mantels. John Hauck was one of the city's famous brewers and gained his wealth through his special talents, even though he was a German immigrant originally. The house is filled with outstanding examples of antique toys, memorabilia and furnishings, and the museum was started to promote the daily life and customs of the late 19th century in urban Cincinnati, with careful and meticulous preservation and interpretations of this house museum. It is considered more of an educational facility that pertains to the everyday living and customs of the period, and sat on what was once considered millionaire row.

  • Cincinnati Observatory
    Cincinnati Observatory Cincinnati, OhioThe Cincinnati Observatory is perched on top of Mount Lookout in Cincinnati, Ohio and is two observatory structures that contain an 11 inch and 16 inch refracting telescopes and is the oldest professional observatory in the nation. The observatory cornerstone was laid on top of Mount Adams in Mount Ida, Ohio overlooking the city of Cincinnati in 1843, and President John Quincy Adams presided over the opening. The President was 77 year old and this would be his last public speech, so it was later changed to Mount Adams to honor this honored gentleman. The University of Cincinnati took control in 1871, and then in 1873, it was moved from Mount Adams to Mount Lookout, where it continues to look down on the city as well into the starry night skies that watch over the city also. It became a National Historic Landmark in 1998, and the asteroid 1373 Cincinnati was so named to honor the staff that works at the observatory. The magnificent instruments that are housed here include; an 1843 Merz and Mahler 11 inch refractor, that is located in the Mitchell building and is considered to be the oldest continually used telescope in the entire world; and is still used for educational programs for the public. The other refractor is a 1904 Alvan Clark & Sons 16 inch, standing in the main building and also used for educational programs as well as graduate research. It was started by Ormsby McKnight Mitchel, professor at Cincinnati College in 1842, who had increased public interest and enthusiasm for astronomy through his many lectures. At the time, there weren't many telescopes in the country although there weren't any organized observatories in the world that had a powerful telescope. Ormsby did manage to create an interest among such necessary people to create the first observatory of that kind in the United States, and after one of his famous lectures, he presented the plan to a group of 2000. That plan involved starting the Cincinnati Astronomical Society, and they would become shareholders in the observatory; with their shares paying for the creation of a first class instrument, and allow them the use of that telescope. Within three weeks, Ormsby had 300 subscribers and he began looking for the kind of telescope he wanted. He managed to buy a 12 inch objective lens of the very best quality in 1842, in Munich, Germany, at the optical institute run by Fraunhofer and ordered one for the new observatory, that he would begin building as soon as he returned to the city. The rest is history and a wonderful story that can be discovered at the observatory when you visit there and it is well worth the visit and the opportunity to look at the stars through one of these magical instruments.
