What we're about

Hide no more from your beliefs (or more appropriately, lack there of)! Yes, there are people just like you in this city. You will be among friends here!

If you have any ideas for future meetups please contact me via the Meetup website.

Tri-State Atheists is primarily a social Meetup, occasionally we will post discussion based meetups and meetups for other groups with similar interests.

Tri-State Freethinkers is our parent organization and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. They are advocates for separation of church & state and equal rights. They also provide opportunities for community service through secular partners.

Cincinnati Museum Center: Destination Moon: The Apollo 11

Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal

Don’t miss the final stop of Apollo 11’s national tour On July 24, 1969, the Apollo 11 mission met President Kennedy’s 1961 challenge of “landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the earth” before the end of the decade. Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission explores and honors that great achievement using genuine flown artifacts from the Apollo 11 mission on loan from the National Air and Space Museum. Featuring the Apollo command module Columbia — the only portion of the historic spacecraft to survive the lunar journey — the exhibition explores the birth and development of the American space program and the space race in time for the 50th anniversary of humankind’s greatest scientific achievement. Destination Moon gives the guest the rare opportunity to see artifacts that made the 953,000-mile journey possible, like Buzz Aldrin’s gold-plated extravehicular helmet visor and thermal-insulated gloves. The dizzying star chart that helped Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins navigate the historic journey and the rucksack and survival kit that accompanied the astronauts are also included. The star of the exhibition is the Columbia command module, on display outside the National Air and Space Museum for the first time since 1976.
