Aug. 9-10: 1940s Weekend


Aug. 9 & 10, 2014

Did you know Union Terminal housed the first USO Troops-In-Transit lounge in 1941? Or that in 1944, more than 34,000 people passed through the 106-foot-tall Rotunda every day?

Travel back in time and help us celebrate this pivotal decade at Union Terminal during 1940s Weekend. Put on your dancing shoes and experience live history with big band music, a classic car show, 1940s film screenings, educational activities and historical displays. Most importantly, marvel at the largest artifact in our collection, Union Terminal.

In conjunction with 1940s Weekend, we're excited to announce Museum Center as a host site for the fifth annual Cincy Lindy Exchange, an event featuring more than 120 dancers from at least 10 states, on Aug. 10. The Jump 'n' Jive Show Band will be playing hits from the 1940s, so swing by before the big dance, enjoy a free dance lesson and lindy with the best of 'em!

Before 1940s Weekend, get vintage hair and makeup tips from local experts at our July 26 Vintage Beauties workshop!
