Cincinnati Union Terminal and Museum Center

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Cincinnati Union Terminal and Museum Center

The ghost of a former security guard who was murdered there still haunts the building at night, rattling the door knobs and checking the locks on the doors. A World War I plane exhibit is haunted by the ghost of a pilot. Visitors have reported seeing the ghostly aviator in the plane’s cockpit, fiddling with the instruments before vanishing. There are also reports of hearing crying and joyous noises near the railroad tracks, which are believed to be haunted by those who welcomed back the soldiers from the war.

  1. I am an employee of The Cincinnati Museum Center or Union Terminal as it’s also known. While working a late night I was down by the tracks and heard voices, to be exact, along the lines of: “When does his train get here?” I turned around wondering who spoke and saw I was the only one in the area. After a quick bit of searching I felt confident that I heard the voice of a Cincinnatian Waiting for a relative to return home from war.

  2. I currently work at the Museum center on third shift doing security, as of this morning at 2:45 am on 08/26/2017 i encountered Shirley, I was on rounds with another co worker and stepped off the Elevator, a few seconds later i became d.izzy and the elevator doors opened up about 20 seconds after they had just closed and no one else was in the building or on the same floor.
