  • If you're interested in Ohio history or the Underground Railroad, this is the stop for you. A nicely preserved home with a great story. Plan about two hours to really see everything, but you could also have a wonderful trip in just an hour. Insider tip: Although the $7 admission is quite low, you can save $$ by checking Groupon and buying tickets in advance.
  • If you’re looking for some cheaper fun to do in downtown Columbus you have got to check out this place. It’s such an interesting fun time. The house/museum is preserved beautifully, and the curator is full of wonderful knowledge and super fun tidbits. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the pieces and furniture around the house.
