1930s ice-cream parlour hidden in Cincinnati's art deco railway station


Cincinnati's gorgeous art deco Union Terminal houses many museums -- and a beautifully preserved 1930s ice-cream parlour serving locally made ice-cream.

When the terminal first opened in 1933, this delightful space was a tea room, though it soon served as USO headquarters during WWII. In 1972, Union Terminal was shuttered, then re-born as a short-lived shopping center, during which time the tea room saw its first stint as an ice cream parlor. Today, the terminal has been successfully operating as Cincinnati Museum Center for almost 25 years, and the Rookwood Ice Cream Parlor serves local favorite Graeter’s Ice Cream.
