Reviews for Ohio Historical Society

Get a glimpse of Ohio's past through standard exhibitions and historical reenactment. – The Scene
The Ohio Historical Society runs the Ohio center, multiple historic sites around the state and an extensive library and archive. Founded in 1885, the OHS was created to collect, preserve and interpret state history. The Ohio Center itself hosts an extensive exhibit that takes visitors through the history of Ohio, beginning in the Ice Age and ending in 1970. Temporary exhibitions often focus on specific industries or more contemporary history. It is best known for its pre-European history collections, with a large exhibit of Native-American artifacts.

The Experience
Ohio Village seeks to re-create daily life in a Civil War-era town. Visitors can observe craftsmen producing a variety of period items from woodcarvings to leather goods to baskets. Costumed historical interpreters busy themselves farming, cooking and playing games. Colonel Crawford's Inn offers a taste of the past, serving traditional midday fare. There's also music from the Ohio Village singers, but don't look for the roots of rap here.

Ohio Village – An entertaining as well as educational museum in general, but the recreation of an 1860s village is the most fun for kids -- what better way to learn what life was really like than to watch an actual blacksmith at work or see how clothing was washed or food prepared?
