Read our informative review to learn if the Cincinnati Music Hall is wheelchair accessible and wheelchair friendly or if Wheelchair Jimmy recommends this attraction be avoided by travelers in wheelchairs.

The Cincinnati Music Hall, completed in 1878, is Cincinnati’s premier classical music performance hall. It serves as the home for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Opera, May Festival Chorus, and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra. In January 1975, it was recognized as a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The building was designed with a dual purpose – to house musical activities in its central auditorium and industrial exhibitions in its side wings. It is located at 1241 Elm Street in Cincinnati, Ohio across from historic Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine, just minutes from the center of the downtown area. Music Hall was built over a pauper’s cemetery, which has helped fuel its reputation as one of the most haunted places in America. In June 2014, Music Hall was included on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s annual list of America’s 11 most endangered historic places.

Jim’s Accessibility Comments:

There are many steps at the Music Hall but it’s very accessible. Probably 15 steps at the North entrance but there is a long ramp for access. There are elevators and wheelchair accessible restrooms throughout the Music Hall and Gallery. The Music Hall website does an excellent job at addressing accessibility. Not all seats are accessible but they do an excellent job at addressing accessibility.
