This was our first visit to the museum. We brought our 3 year old grandson. There were a lot of activities for him to enjoy! Train table, huge train display, life size car to drive, fishing game and more. You won’t be disappointed!

Nice stop on my trip through Cincinnati. Local history, including everything from mammoth bones to a working train exhibit. Also, don't miss the two headed calf, the shrunken head, and the cow hairball!
