From Cincinnati Museum Center:

Due to unexpected construction activity, the Duke Energy Children’s Museum is temporarily closed. Crews are working to assess the extent of the work needed. It has been our intention to keep the Duke Energy Children’s Museum open as much as possible during the restoration of Union Terminal, however, this construction activity will be more extensive than anticipated and will disrupt public access to these spaces. As areas of the Duke Energy Children’s Museum become an active construction site, Cincinnati Museum Center has closed the area for the safety of our guests. While we know this is disappointing to guests right now, this is necessary for future fun in the space. We will keep the public informed as soon as we can with construction updates.

This temporary closure of the Duke Energy Children’s Museum does NOT impact the opening of Holiday Junction featuring Brickopolis. Holiday Junction featuring Brickopolis will open Friday, November 10. This experience is still free and available to your members. We hope they will join us to make memories here this holiday season!

We apologize for all inconveniences this causes and thank you for your understanding and patience as we work to restore Union Terminal.

Most Valuable Kids

Tickets to The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati are non-refundable, but if you can't attend a show you may turn them in to the TCTC Box Office before the performance. The value of the returned tickets can be considered a fully tax deductible gift to The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati.

We also encourage you to donate your tickets to Most Valuable Kids of Greater Cincinnati, Inc. MVK overcomes the financial obstacles associated with live events by distributing unused tickets to kids who would enjoy the opportunity to go to an event, but would otherwise not be able to because of the high costs associated with tickets. These tickets are distributed to boys and girls,18 and under, through local tax-exempt organizations that focus on children in low-income and underserved households. They require 24 hours in advance or by noon on Friday for a Saturday or Sunday performance.  For details visit:  Most Valuable Kids.
