Holiday: Toys through Time

By Maija Zummo · December 21st, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal boasts another holiday attraction in addition to Holiday Junction with the display Toys through Time. This exhibit takes a look at, well, toys throughout time, many of which were manufactured right here in Cincinnati by the Kenner Toy Company in the 19th and 20th centuries.

There will be classic dolls, sporting goods, Star Wars memorabilia and even a first generation Monopoly set.

Also on display will be a Lionel No. 10 passenger train set from 1925, given to Cincinnati resident William R. Attee III when he was a boy. The set includes a metal locomotive, three passenger cars, a track, switches, signals and several buildings.

The exhibit is free and open to the public in the John A. Ruthven Exhibit Gallery. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday through Jan. 3. Closed Christmas Day.
