About the REC

The REC is a space for families to discover the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection in a fun and safe manner. Open during specific museum hours, the REC is located on the first floor, just off of the Great Hall. The REC has a dedicated interactive space that changes twice a year. Themes for the interactive space are based on the permanent collection, special exhibitions, and/or elements of art and world cultures.

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to accommodate school groups at this time. For information about additional opportunities for students and teachers contact us at [email protected]

REC Volunteers

The Cincinnati Art Museum is seeking weekend volunteers to work in collaboration with museum staff to plan and prepare art projects, assist families and young visitors with art making, and greet visitors. This is a great opportunity to gain museum education experience while interacting and engaging with the community. Educational credit may be available for volunteers depending on the requirements of your university. Please visit the REC Volunteer Page for more information.
