Experience Gifts All Around!

Experience gifts make the best gifts this time of year. We rounded up the best!

Zoo Membership

Take advantage of Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s big membership sale all monthlong! New animals families can meet include three manatees that have been welcomed to Manatee Springs for rehabilitation. Nolia, Amethyst and Waffles can be seen in Cincinnati until they reach their goal weight of 600 pounds. These orphaned manatees were rescued in early 2023 and transported to CZBG. Once these manatees are big and strong, they will be returned back to Florida waters. For now, families can visit Nolia, Amethyst and Waffles to watch them grow at the Cincinnati Zoo, located at 3400 Vine St. Visit cincinnatizoo.org or call 513-281-4700.

Taft Museum

Take advantage of the Taft membership sale to see all of the museum’s upcoming exhibits; enjoy 20 percent off of Dual/Family level gift memberships through December 31. Members receive discounts on programming and on Summer Art Camps, too! Visit taftmuseum.org/membership or give 513-241-0343 a call.

Cincinnati Museum Center

Save 20 percent on a year of discovery and exploration. A new exhibit — Girlhood (It’s Complicated) — dives into how girlhood has changed through news, politics, education, work, wellness and fashion. Visit cincymuseum.org or call 513-287-7000 for more information.
