Free Fridays are back at Cincinnati Museum Center
CINCINNATI - Meet our mummy, hop aboard a 19th century steamboat, climb through the treetops in our multi-story woods, and visit an underground waterfall in our limestone cave— all for free!
Free Fridays are back at Cincinnati Museum Center. Explore our three great museums, the Duke Energy Children’s Museum, Museum of Natural History & Science and Cincinnati History Museum, all free of charge from 4 to 8 p.m. on selected Fridays throughout the summer. This year’s Free Fridays are June 3, July 8, August 5 and September 9.
For almost a decade, Free Fridays have provided free educational opportunities to the local community. With special programming, extended hours and free admission, Free Fridays are perfect for those on a tight budget or who aren’t able to visit the museum during regular admission hours.
Free Fridays are presented thanks to the generosity of Rosemary and Frank Bloom, Chemed Corporation, Digital Media Group, Inc. and The Sheakley Group.
Interested in visiting our new blockbuster exhibit, Cleopatra: The Exhibition, or traveling inside a tornado with our newest OMNIMAX film, Tornado Alley, while your here? Both are open late! Tickets to the OMNIMAX and special exhibit are not included in Free Fridays, but can be purchased at the kiosk, by phone at 513-287-7000 or online at www.cincymuseum.org.
