  • Wonderful insight to Ohio's past and what life was like in the late 1800s . Plenty of history and cultural galleries to wander through at your own pace. The village is interesting also. It takes you back in time to a progressing era in our world. A great place for young or old to enjoy. The onsite cafe has plenty to choose from for eats. I would give yourself at least 4 to 5 hours to enjoy.
  • There are some nice displays here, but this was just average in comparison to other museums like this. The Ohio village was disappointing. Some buildings were closed and overall not as large as other living history villages. On an event day, I am sure that this is more interesting.
