About

Grab your dancing shoes, put on your zoot suit and travel back in time when 1940s Day returns home to Union Terminal. A Holocaust survivor, classic cars, live music and dancing highlight Cincinnati Museum Center’s 1940s Day August 10. 1940s Day is an immersive celebration of the pivotal decade, including its music, fashion, vehicles and the people who shaped it.
