Ditto to what Tom Schiffer has to say. The Cincinnati Library houses the Inland Rivers collection--a chance to hold in your hands some rare volumes on river history. You could spend a LOT of time there alone--indeed, you could spend loads of time at ANY of the museums on your list! Each one is worth the visit. Be sure to check with each place beforehand about policies. For instance, some will let you take digital photos (no flash) of some of their collections under certain circumstances; some ask that you let them copy for a fee. Some will ask you to enter their rare collections with pencil and gloves only! The Cincinnati Library's collection is indexed online, which might save you some time. Good luck with your research--which is one of my favorite things to do!! Be sure to ride BB Riverboats when you are in town.
