My daughter and I recently enjoyed Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs at the Omnimax in Cincinnati, OH. The show runs for 40 minutes. It is educational and not scary. The Omnimax in general can be scary for kids that are afraid of the dark and the large scale can be overwhelming. We have personally not had any problems. Before every film we repeat “This is just a movie. If you are afraid close your eyes and hold my hand until you feel better.” There was one moment during one about space that she clamped down on my hand for a second and that has been it. I found this show entertaining and informative. My five year old daughter found it amusing enough to sit still the entire time. There are many beautiful shots of Egypt. The show ends April 26th. If you are interested in Egypt, mummies, or advances in healthcare this may be the film for you.

You get a discount on tickets if you print them at home. There is a link on the above link. Current prices are $8.50 for adults and $6.50 for kids without the discount. If you live in the Cincinnati area & would enjoy experiencing the Omnimax on a regular basis I would suggest a 1-year membership for $25. It’s a great deal. Parking is $6. After 4:30 it’s $4.
