Cincinnati Museum Center

Union Terminal

We recently went to Cincinnati to meet up with Erin's parents for lunch and a visit to the Cincinnati Museum Center. For lunch we had Wild Ginger Asian Bistro. The food was good, though a touch on the pricey side.

We started out at the Museum of Natural History and Science. It was a pretty typical natural history museum. Skeletons, fossils and a space exhibit. There were also artificial caves and an ice age exhibit.

After that we stopped off for some ice cream, then headed into the Cincinnati History Museum. It consisted of a really cool model of Cincinnati based on the early-mid 1900s, a large scale model of the waterfront from the 1800s, some machine history, and a World War II exhibit focusing mostly on life on the home front.

"Oh no! I missed my stop!"

I found this poster very amusing
I think one of the more interesting finds was learning about Bill Nimmo, since I basically never see the Nimmo surname outside of my family.

There was an audio clip of him discussing his experiences

A quick blurb

Bill Nimmo (with awful reflection)

By the time we found Bill Nimmo, it was pretty much closing time so we headed out. I grabbed the leading shot as we were heading out.
