While you’re here, don’t forget to visit the award-winning exhibition Diana, A Celebration before it ends its world tour here at Cincinnati Museum Center. Purchase a ticket and experience the amazing life and legacy of Diana, Princess of Wales. Learn about her pioneering charity work with those suffering from AIDS, leprosy and the effects of landmines. Relive Diana’s childhood through intimate home videos, family photos and even her diary. And marvel at 28 of the fashion icon’s designer gowns plus her magnificent royal wedding dress, complete with a 25-foot silk train. Diana, A Celebration closes for the final time August 17, so buy your tickets today and be sure not to miss this incredible exhibition.
If three museums and a Rotunda full of fun activities haven’t worn you out, you can purchase a ticket for the OMNIMAX® theater and take a trip halfway around the world or beyond the stars without leaving the building. Island of Lemurs: Madagascar will introduce you to lemurs, a group of amazing and adorable animals who drifted to Madagascar as stowaways in the age of dinosaurs and now jump, swing, dance and sing across the island they call home. Hidden Universe explores the stars beyond our galaxy in ways never seen before. Witness stars being born from clouds of dust and gas and learn how powerful telescopes high in the deserts of Chile are offering breathtaking views of the universe that will change the way you look at the night sky.
