Know Before You Go
The UnMuseum is located on the 6th inside the Cincinnati Contemporary Art Museum (CAC). The CAC is conveniently located downtown right across from Nada. The official arts ambassador, Metrobot, will greet you as you arrive! Admission to the museum and its galleries are free to the public. Parking was relatively easy as there are multiple parking garages located near the museum. Street parking is available, but that requires speed, agility and the luck of the Irish. The museum does have unique hours so be sure to check them out before you go on their website.
The exhibits found in the UnMuseum are unlike any you will find elsewhere in the city. This is because they give children a different perspective on art and it sparks their curiosity. Whether it is starring in an infinitely of lights, hopping aboard a crazy camper or making music in a bizarre manner there is something for everyone to explore. You may even make a few new friends during your visit.
Create Your Own Art
Art Making Space
In addition to their Please Play Area, the UnMuseum has a huge art-making space as well. Open the entire time the museum is open guests can go and make their own work of art. Everything you need is available at your fingertips to create a glowing masterpiece. Parents love not having to worry about scheduled art times or extra fees.
If you are looking for a fun scheduled activity for your little one Family Art Play is a great addition. Every Thursday at 10:30 am this program incorporates storytelling, performance, and hands-on artmaking activities. The class is followed by some kid-friendly yoga in the UnMuseum but keep in mind that it is aimed at children 2-5. The cost is free for members and $5.00 for non-members.
A visit to the UnMuseum is a great indoor activity for those rainy, snowy days because it is educational and doesn’t cost a dime. Check out our Cincinnati family favorites for more fun things to explore in our great city.
