NURFC Holiday Hours

As you welcome family and friends from all over to visit Cincinnati, and the Greater Cincinnati region, to appreciate the many successes and joys life can bring, we hope you also take a moment to reflect on the struggles many have gone through for you to celebrate this time of giving.  

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center will be closed on Thursday, November 23. We will reopen on Friday, November 24 for regular museum hours from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. We encourage you to visit and bring your in, and out-of-town guests to see us as we have much going on.  

Through November 30, veterans get free general admission to the museum. This is our way of saying thank you for the service they have given to our country. If you have not visited in a while, come in to see our newest exhibit, The Kinsey African American Art & History Collection. The exhibit features the largest private-owned collection of African American art, artifacts and documents in the country from Bernard and Shirley Kinsey, spanning more than 400 hundred years of history.   

Guests also have the opporunity to see our permanent exhibits such as The Rosa Parks Experience, and the Open Your Mind: Understanding Implicit Bias Learning Lab during their visit. The Rosa Parks Experience, sponsored by Procter & Gamble, is an immersive virtual reality experience that commemorates Civil Rights icon Rosa Parks’ historic demonstration, just four days before the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955. The Open Your Mind: Understanding Implicit Bias Learning Lab is designed to assist the public in understanding and recognizing bias and other forms of discrimination, as well as to explore recent debates in the realm of implicit bias research. The learning lab is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Foundation and Procter & Gamble.

We at The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center hope you have a fun and safe holiday season whether you’re staying home or traveling. We hope you’ll stop by for a meaningful museum experience with your loved ones over the holidays. #MyNURFC
