Attractions and Field Trips
Be sure to visit all three museums! The Duke Energy Children’s Museum is consistently ranked in the top 10 children’s museums in the U.S. and the exhibits encourage kids to climb, crawl, explore and learn about themselves and the world around them. Then, walk through a glacier and step back 19,000 years into the Ice Age in the Museum of Natural History & Science and learn about Cincinnati’s past and early life in Ohio in the Cincinnati History Museum. Group activities are also available for all ages, such as Scout Programs, Day Camps, Overnights, Sprouts Institute, Bright Ideas and Explorers University. Our programming is multi-diciplinary (like us), and focuses on everything from art and culture to science, history and technology.
