The restored Union Terminal fountain and clock now welcome visitors to the Cincinnati Museum Center, which reopens to the public this Saturday.

After years of planning and construction to repair the 85-year-old Union Terminal, the Cincinnati Museum Center will reopen this Saturday, November 17.

While the OMNIMAX® Theater and several displays will remain closed until restoration is completed, visitors will be able to view the restored Union Terminal clock, fountain and rotunda's Winold Reiss mosaics.

The Duke Energy Children's Museum is open, and starting Saturday, guests will also be able to enjoy Holiday Junction with the Duke Energy Holiday Trains, the Public Landing in the Cincinnati History Museum and Dinosaur Hall in the Museum of Natural History & Science. Special exhibits spaces currently feature Chocolate: The Exhibition and GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World.

The recently renamed Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center (HHC) has relocated its offices to Union Terminal. The HHC's 7,500-square-foot exhibit dedicated to "using the lessons of the Holocaust to inspire action today" will officially open to the public January 26, 2019, to coincide with the United Nations Day of Holocaust Remembrance and the liberation of Auschwitz.

Joining Cincinnati Edition for a preview of what visitors will see at the newly-restored Union Terminal are the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center Executive Director Sarah Wiess; and Cincinnati Museum Center President and CEO Elizabeth Pierce.
