Cincinnati Museum Center Heritage Programs presents historical, cultural and architectural tours both inside Cincinnati Museum Center and seasonally outdoors in the surrounding communities. 

Rotunda Tours are FREE and are offered Saturdays at noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m. and Sundays at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Celebrate Union Terminal’s restoration and learn about the building’s significant history with a 50-minute free Rotunda tour led by our Cincinnati Heritage Program docents. You’ll discover more about the construction, architecture and artwork of one of the world’s finest examples of art deco style. Hear details about the world-famous mosaic tile murals, see newly restored artwork in historic dining rooms and visit today’s Amtrak waiting room and the Rookwood Tea Room. These tours include walks up and down stairs. They meet in the Rotunda at the starting times and no registration is required. Tour dates and times are subject to change without notice.

Other Cincinnati Heritage Program events including outdoor Walking Tours, Speakers' Bureau series, and Brown Bag Lectures are available for a fee. Visit the website for schedule and further details.
