  • It was a great place for the wedding and reception! We enjoyed walking around and looking at all the art exhibits. It also had some beautiful views of the city of Cincinnati. Definitely a great place to visit!
  • I think I've this opinion for all the wrong reasons: still there wasn't much there. Almost too much space between exhibits. While the clown exhibit was lightly interesting... still my mom never let me leave my GI Joes laying all over the floor. I'm not sure why this was much different.
  • We've gotten addicted to the top floor Unmuseum. We have taken the kids several times and they absolutely love the programming, crafts, and space. The location and building are amazing, and it's incredible to see true modern architecture blend into the cityscape.
  • Surprised buy what they had. It was actually really good. Interactive exhibition was fun.
  • Great exhibits, and the perfect quantity. You can spend a few hours here and don't feel overwhelmed by the amount of art like in a traditional gallery.
