Great Father’s Day Ideas from Your Friends at Cincinnati Museum Center
Don't miss Zahi Hawass LIVE at the Aronoff Center 7 p.m. June 12
CINCINNATI – June is here and it’s not too early to start thinking about dad! Make this Father’s Day one to remember with a little help from Cincinnati Museum Center. We've got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and unique programs that will blow the socks of your traditional gifts.
Start celebrating dad a week early with tickets to see Egypt’s world-renowned archaeologist, Dr. Zahi Hawass. He’ll be live at the Aronoff Center Sunday, June 12 at 7 p.m. giving a lecture, “Egypt: Yesterday and Today”. Dr. Hawass, minister of state for antiquities, is searching for the tomb of Cleopatra and Mark Antony and is featured in our current exhibition, Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt. Tickets start at $30 and include admission to the exhibition. For tickets and more information about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity visit www.cincymuseum.org.
Now that you have your tickets to Cleopatra, included with your Zahi Hawass lecture ticket, you need to visit us at Union Terminal! Why not come on Father’s Day, Sunday June 19? We’re open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. which means you have plenty of time to take in all the gorgeous artifacts and fascinating history Cleopatra has to offer.
While you’re here on Father’s Day, your kids ages 9-15 will love taking part in our Explorers University class on Forensics with you. This hands-on activity from 2 – 3 p.m. in the Museum of Natural History & Science teaches the techniques used by detectives and anthropologists to identify bodies and solve mysteries. How cool is that?
Make Cincinnati Museum Center part of your Father’s Day celebration and the memories will last a lifetime. And if you haven’t seen Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt yet, now’s the perfect chance. Dr. Hawass provides excitement and additional background to the exhibit, which is leaving soon. Call (513) 287-7000 or visit www.cincymuseum.org for more information.
