        Built in 1885, the Ivorydale plant is part of the Millcreek Valley section of the exhibition. It is shown as it was in 1910, when Ivory Soap and Crisco vegetable shortening were the major P&G products.

        In process since November 1999, Cincinnati in Motion is a scale model of Cincinnati, downtown and neighborhoods in various eras from 1890 to 1940. The year-long project will be completed by Nov. 18, as part of the Museum Center's 10th anniversary celebration.

        Visitors to the Cincinnati History Museum can watch the installation in progress, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.

        Admission to the History Museum is $6.50, $4.50 ages 3-12; combo tickets to other attractions in the Museum Center cost extra. 287-7000.
