Cincinnati Museum Center’s newly restored Westheimer Exhibit Halls are specially designed to host traveling exhibitions of all shapes and sizes. Here’s what we’re hosting now.
June 29 to Jan 6
Chocolate: The Exhibition traces the rich history of the cacao bean, from its beginning of a royal — even divine — Maya drink to its current role as a romantic gesture, guilty pleasure and global commodity.
Sep 21 to Jan 6
Nearly 100 historical artifacts, including over 60 instruments, trace the guitar’s evolution and the way cultures and musicians drastically changed the shape and sound of the instrument.
Nov 17 to Jan 27
Get a whole new perspective on a Cincinnati holiday tradition. Step into a children’s storybook, build a snowman under the northern lights and see your favorite train layouts, including Thomas, Carlisle & Finch, Lionel and a riding train.
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Open daily with the exception of Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day.
