Cincinnati Museum Center celebrates curiosity, exploration and discovery throughout the community all year. Come to one of our regular special events and take a deep dive into a fascinating regional history or science topic.
Select Thursday evenings from 7 to 10 p.m.
Join us after hours as we go off the rails in a quarterly event series exclusively for our 21+ crowd. Explore a museum, enjoy themed food and programming, plus a cash bar as you experience the museum in a whole new way. Off the Rails After Hours combines your childhood nostalgia with a cash bar and sprinkle of A Night at the Museum.
November 3, 2023
Join us for our annual adults-only night at the museum – Layers of Discovery. We are excited to host an evening filled with light bites from local restaurants, creative cocktails, explosive programming and exclusive access to our world-class exhibits. Plus explore our newly-opened exhibit, Ancient Worlds Hiding in Plain Sight (opening Fall 2023).
All proceeds from the event support our plans to reimagine the museum experience and offer new and enhanced programs through the Cincinnati Museum Center’s Champion More Curiosity Campaign. Together we can strengthen our community, transform young minds, and launch quests of discovery.
