Cincinnati Museum Center turns on historic fountain

Join us as we turn on the fountain at Union Terminal May 20

WHAT: 44,000 gallons of water spring to life this Friday as Cincinnati Museum Center turns on Union Terminal’s iconic fountain.
Union Terminal’s fountain has long been a sign of summer. With temperatures rising and school wrapping up, Cincinnati Museum Center is once again helping usher in summertime in Cincinnati.
44,000 gallons of water will spring to life Friday, May 20 as Cincinnati Museum Center turns on Union Terminal’s iconic fountain.
As part of the celebration, Cincinnati Museum Center is hosting programming and activities around the fountain to help get kids of all ages fired up to count it down and flip the switch. And, returning after a long hiatus, is Cincinnati Museum Center’s Salty Jack, a blast from the past to infuse some summertime shenanigans.

Plus, the new OMNIMAX® film Into America’s Wild takes you on a stunning adventure through America’s parks and a brand new permanent exhibit celebrates the city’s entrepreneurial spirit in Made in Cincinnati (opening in July).
Guests are invited to join the festivities at 10 a.m. and help count down the fountain’s start at 10:30 a.m.
WHEN: Friday, May 20
