Giving to the Annual Fund

Giving a little means a lot! Donate now >

Do you remember the spark you felt when you first visited Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal? Was it as a child during a field trip? Or when you brought your grandchildren to learn more about the world around them?

As the largest cultural institution in our community, we strive to create meaningful experiences, inspiration and lasting memories for all. Our programs and exhibitions introduce new ideas to more than 1.4 million visitors each year. Last year alone, we hosted 398 Learning Labs for over 9,600 students and 2,500 adults. Almost 500,000 school children received positive out-of-the-classroom experiences on field trips.

Our impact stretches beyond the dome of the Grand Rotunda. Each year, for example, Programs-on-Wheels delivers hands-on programming in over 950 schools and reaches more than 24,000 students who may not otherwise have such opportunities.

Join your friends and family this year as they visit the Cincinnati History Museum for the best-ever Holiday Junction featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains! Partner with us in giving the gifts of inspiration and lasting memories for people of all ages. A donation in any amount allows us to continue what we do best every day - from making childhood memories during the holidays, to celebrating families and grandparents, to inspiring young scientists!

These are just a few ways your gift will make traditions come alive at Museum Center:

Thank you for making Museum Center a tradition and sharing us with others in your life. With your support, Museum Center will continue to create meaningful experiences and inspire lifelong passions for generations to come.
