Cincinnati Museum Center and Banfield Pet Hospital, the nation’s largest general veterinary practice, have joined together to create an exhibit celebrating the health and wellness of our four-legged family members.

Visit our kid-sized Banfield Pet Hospital in the Duke Energy Children’s Museum to explore the reception area, exam tables, grooming station, kennels and real veterinary tools. Practice checking vital signs of stuffed animal pets, reviewing X-rays, weighing pets and scanning them for microchips.

During our FutureVet® program, bring your young animal lovers to the Duke Energy Children’s Museum to meet a real veterinarian. Learn how to pick the right pet for your family, what pets need in their homes, why pets go to the doctor and reasons pets might not feel well. Your FutureVet® graduate will even receive a diploma, a stethoscope, and a goody bag!
