CINCINNATI - You know it's almost summer in Cincinnati when you see Cincinnati Museum Center's Union Terminal fountain on in all its glory! This morning, Museum Center turned on the fountain with the help of our community. Guests were invited to join and help countdown as the fountain was brought to life for the summer of 2013. The celebration was a kick-off for a summer overflowing with fun and educational programming for the whole family. Join us this summer for 100 Days of Fun, Free Fridays and DINOSAURS!
100 DAYS OF FUN
Is it too hot out? Raining again? Sounds like a perfect day to head to the museum. We have something for you to do every day for 100 days from May 24 through August 31. It's 100 Days of Fun and it might just take you the whole summer to see it all! Each time you come back, we're sure you'll find something new and exciting. You can meet our real mummy and learn about solar and wind power in the Museum of Natural History & Science. Don't forget about our 10th anniversary of BugFest on June 1! Hop aboard a 19th century steamboat and step back in time to the 1940s with the Cincinnati History Museum. Burn off some energy by climbing through the tree tops in our multi-story woods in the award-winning Duke Energy Children's Museum. And these are just to name a few!
100 Days of Fun is presented thanks to the generosity of Procter & Gamble.
Plus, this year's 100 Days of Fun features dinosaurs you've never seen, in ways you've never imagined. Our new blockbuster exhibition, Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana makes its US premiere June 13. From South America, Africa and Madagascar, these are some of the largest and most unusual dinosaurs to have ever roamed the planet. Your exhibition experience is enhanced with super cool augmented reality! Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana is produced and circulated by the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto and presented locally with the generous support of associate sponsor Frisch's Big Boy.
Pair the exhibit with the new OMNIMAX film, Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia for a completely massive experience.
