Event: 1940s Weekend

By Maija Zummo · August 6th, 2013 · CityBeat Recommends

If a traditional trip to the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal isn’t enough of a step back in time for you, head there this weekend for a 1940s weekend. 

The museum will relive Union Terminal’s heyday — when it was transporting up to 34,000 people daily — with two days of living history. There will be a classic car show in the front driveway with cars from the ’20s-’40s; performances by Sweet and Lows, an Andrews Sisters-inspired a cappella group; classic films, newsreels and PSAs in the Newsreel Theater; Big Band music and dancing in the Losantiville Café; 1940s hair and makeup tutorials; World War II weapons displays; nostalgic cuisine and more all weekend. 

10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Saturday; 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday. Activities in the driveway, Rotunda and surrounding areas are free; $12.50 adults for Cincinnati History Museum entry; $8.50 for children. Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, 1301 Western Ave., Queensgate, cincymuseum.org.
