    Nice experience to spend with the family, the animals are in excellent condition, there are restaurants, shops, bathrooms, everything you need is very good. The most beautiful thing is the white lions, they are beautiful and it seems that they pose for you to take their best photo. The very funny hippo

    First time to a Reds game in 30 years and first time at new park that replaced Riverfront Stadium. i will always have a fond remembrance and love what Riverfront was, however this park also has some nice features. Love the Riverboat theme in outfield, though it's a shame you have to walk around back of it to see the Ohio River to any degree. Can only see a bit from indoors. Some parks ignoring the Riverboat do have a nicer view in outfield. Overall it's a nice park, though i also noted as others have that the fans here are a bit quiet overall, that being said, the team Cincinnati has assembled on a relative low budget needs improvement. I also agree that the circus atmosphere and not just here but other parks has gotten distracting and noisy and for actual baseball fans has become a detraction to going to a live game versus on tv. Good Seats behind the Reds dugout though overall, and nice food selection though takes some walking as the food area behind home is like a double row and food areas are pretty spread out. Overall though a very nice park and was excited to be here.

    Free. I'd almost say world-class: surprisingly full of many examples from the various periods. Not too many masters: couple El Grecos, one or two Titians, one Reubens. Couple Monets (or Manets), I forget, I don't particularly like the Impressionists. Would absolutely go back.

    What a cool place! Very good tour and real blast into the past. The HoJo’s and Sohio signs were awesome as the that’s where I met my wife, while I pumped gas on the Ohio Turnpike. So many things that have become pretty much only memories brought to life. And very nice representation of Ohio and Cincinnati.

    Nice place for everyone to walk and enjoy. Green and clean with the exception of a few irresponsible pet owners.

    Loved the interactive activities. Though the subject is sad, it is interesting to learn and see how things were experienced in the past and how it influences the current day.

    We rented Red Bikes and rode over the bridge and along the river on the OH and KY side. Definitely worth a visit

    Went to Spring Grove with my son to pay homage to my parent's grave. It is such a peaceful and beautiful cemetery. It is a who's-who of Cincinnati with all the individuals behind the major street names of Cincinnati buried there. It's big enough that it takes 10-15 minutes driving to get from the entrance to the back of the cemetery. I almost always see wild turkey or swans, geese when I go there. And now they allow biking which I think would be nice to do there.

    I've been to the top of the tower to view the world from a birds eye a few times and just discovered that my mother has never had the experience so I'm hoping the viewing platform will be opening again soon

    This is a nice place to just walk, sit, people watch, meditate and/or talk. Clean and green. Picturesque.

    This place is awesome, My favorite time is to visit during the annual holiday displays. They have trains running and building unique to Cincinnati made from nature materials. Its decorated for the Holiday Season. Its just beautiful.

    Other great times are Easter and the butterfly shows.

    Great place for couples, families, kids or on a date.

    I hadn't been to the Cincinnati Museum Center in many years, but we were in Cincinnati for a concert on Friday night and had planned to go to the zoo on Saturday. Mother Nature had a different idea. We woke up to snow on Saturday morning and a temperature difference of 35 degrees from the previous day. So, instead of the zoo, we went to the Museum Center. The building itself is worth the trip. The place is an art deco masterpiece! We enjoyed the exhibits and had a great time. The staff was great and the center was very clean and well-organized. It wasn't what we planned to do, but it was a great alternative!!

    Was and is a great and wonderful gift that Cincinnatians have long had. First time back n 30 years and so happy to still see how beautiful it is and fascinating to see some of the structures in the park and the wonderful views of the city. Lovely place to get away from the city while in the city.

    If you are in Cincinnati, you should definitely go. The vendors have a lot of great options, and the shops nearby are great too. So many good bakery options!
