Cincinnati Museum Center launches ‘Museum on Tap’

Learning doesn’t have to be dry.

Explore the mesmerizing, the macabre, and the weird with a drink in hand after-hours at the Cincinnati Museum Center’s adult (21+) ‘Museum on Tap’ series.

Visitors can expect a behind-the-scenes look at the museum’s exhibitions, as well as a variety of topics for adults that love their science and history with a dose of murder, sex, and conspiracy.

Museum on Tap’s first event will be January 23, and is titled ‘Space Gallery Puzzle Crawl’. Curious, yet? So are we.

Tickets include admission to the event. Beer, wine, and appetizers are available for purchase at Cup & Pint inside Union Terminal.

Here is a breakdown of Museum on Tap’s 2020 season:

Space Gallery Puzzle Crawl
– Thursday, January 23
6 to 9 p.m.
It’s awful lonely in space, so don’t be a Sandra Bullock and grab your friends for an interstellar adventure. You’ll need them if you want to make it back alive. Feel yourself and put on your space pants as you solve your way through outer space with Puzzle Crawl in the Neil Armstrong Space Exploration Gallery, presented by the Harold C. Schott Foundation. And if you can’t be the one coming up with all the answers, be the quippy best friend or the one making the bar run in less than twelve parsecs.

Aaron Burr: American Bastard – Thursday, March 5
6 to 9 p.m.
In many ways, Aaron Burr was a model American and a revered Founding Father. He fought bravely in the Revolutionary War, served in the Senate and was Thomas Jefferson’s Vice President. But even in 1804, it was more than a little scandalous for a sitting Vice President to shoot and kill a fellow Founding Father in an illegal duel. And if that wasn’t enough, he was charged with treason just a few years later. Find out what happened to this American bastard after he shot Alexander Hamilton and how he, along with the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Army, made plans to establish an independent country in Texas and Mexico. Explore early Cincinnati to discover what part our region played in this American soap opera.

Mysteries of the Maya – Thursday, April 16
6 to 9 p.m.
What’s hiding deep in the rainforests of Guatemala? Travel back in time and deep into the jungle to a world of innovators and gods. Discover how the Maya created a calendar more accurate than even ours today – and why the world didn’t end in 2012. Learn about a sporting event that ended with human sacrifice rather than a handshake and how bloodletting brought them closer to the gods. Become an amateur archaeologist as you reveal the mysteries of the Maya. Includes admission to Maya: The Exhibition.
