Experience history, science, art and more over drinks with friends while you pick the brains of local experts.

Learning is an adventure and CurioCity invites you to loosen up with friends over topics that will keep the conversations going and the curiosity flowing.

CurioCity is a 21+ social series that gives community members a fresh way to see our collections, meet our curators and engage with experts. Monthly events will be held at the restored historic Union Terminal and at partner venues around Greater Cincinnati.

Why Pigs Fly

January 18, 2018, at 7 p.m. at Myrtle's Punch House

We all know that Cincinnati is where pigs fly but have you ever wondered how that happened? Dive in to the fact and fiction of Cincinnati’s industrial history as we discover why pigs fly. When will this opportunity come around again? When pigs fly!


February 15, 2018, at 7 p.m. at the Mercantile Library

Not much out there beats the smell of a new book, the sound of quickly flipping through the pages or the feeling of getting lost in its story for hours. That’s why Cincinnati Museum Center is throwing this gathering of bookworms. But don’t judge this book by its cover; this event is for bibliophiles and bibliophobes alike. Learn about the history of print, book binding and story crafting at Bibliophilia!

Cheers to you, Britain

May 17, 2018, at 7 p.m. at Pub Rookwood

The British are coming! But we aren’t complaining. British pop culture has been spilling over the pond for years now, and we want to celebrate it.

Grab your sonic screwdrivers, brush up on your BBC shows and join us at Pub Rookwood for a celebration of all things British.

Back from Extinction

June 21, 2018, at 7 p.m. at Rhinegeist Brewery

Escape the Hustle and bustle of your daily life and spend an evening with the Cincinnati Museum Center at Rhinegeist Brewery as we talk all things dinosaurs. It will be a night filled with Truth, Knowledge and Pure Fury as we ask the important questions like…how much beer does it take to get a dinosaur drunk? Or just how disgusting are dinosaurs? So don’t be a Knucklehead and be sure to tell your Dad how much fun you’re going to have and come down to the tap room for this free event!
