Learning doesn’t have to be dry.

So grab a drink and loosen up with friends, local experts and topics that are a little saucy, a little spicy and always fascinating. Cincinnati Museum Center’s Museum on Tap is a series for those curious learners 21 and up that explores the mesmerizing, the macabre and the weird with a drink in hand after hours.

In addition to behind the scenes tours and closer looks at exhibitions, Museum on Tap uncovers a variety of topics for adults that love their science and history with a sprinkle of murder, sex and conspiracy.

Tickets include admission to the event. Beer and wine and appetizers are available for purchase at Cup & Pint inside Union Terminal.

Upcoming Museum on Tap Events
Aaron Burr: American Bastard (21+)

Thursday, March 5, 2020   |   6 – 9 p.m.

In many ways, Aaron Burr was a model American and a revered Founding Father. He fought bravely in the Revolutionary War, served in the Senate and was Thomas Jefferson’s Vice President. But even in 1804 it was more than a little scandalous for a sitting Vice President to shoot and kill a fellow Founding Father in an illegal duel. And if that wasn’t enough, he was charged with treason just a few years later. Find out what happened to this American bastard after he shot Alexander Hamilton and how he, along with the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Army, made plans to establish an independent country in Texas and Mexico. Explore early Cincinnati to discover what part our region played in this American saga.
