Cincinnati – Things to do with your Team

Back in the 19th century, Cincinnati was one of the country’s largest boomtowns. What’s even more impressive is that it was competing with cities on the east coast that were established far before it was. Cincinnati was referred to as the heart of America. Because it was the first city founded after the Revolutionary War, people think of Cincinnati as the first purely American city. While you and your team visit, you will experience all of the exciting activities Cincinnati has to offer.


Cincinnati Museum Center

Housing three museums and more in one complex, the Cincinnati Museum Center is an epic mega-museum. Here, you can explore the Museum of Natural History & Science, • Cincinnati History Museum, • Duke Energy Children’s Museum, and • OMNIMAX Theater. You can even pop into the Cincinnati History Library and Archives to look through some old – very old – newspapers and magazines. If you’re a history buff, you might have one of the most interesting conversations ever with one of the knowledgeable staff who manages the archive. All of this takes place in the ginormous Union Terminal, which is built in quirky Art Deco style and features the largest half-dome in the western hemisphere, reaching a height of 106 feet. Beautiful tile mosaics decorate the interior of the building, and if you look closely, you’ll see 15 local businesses featured in various mosaics. 1301 Western Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45203
