Ohio History Center

The Ohio History Center is the headquarters of the Ohio History Connection. Our mission is to spark discovery of Ohio's stories. Embrace the present, share the past and transform the future.

What You'll Do

Bring the whole family for a fun, interactive day filled with exhibits exploring everything from life in the 1950s to extinct and endangered Ohio species to an exquisite collection of restored Civil War battle flags. Head up to the Archives/Library Research Room, and learn more about your access to genealogy, print, audio and video resources. Learn more about resources for preserving homes and communities at our State Historic Preservation Office.

Insider Tips

Ohio Village: From Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, Ohio Village is open the same hours as the Ohio History Center! During this time, Ohio Village, our recreated 19th-century community, is included with general admission to the Ohio History Center. During the summer, stroll through the village or stop by to see the Ohio Village Muffins play baseball by 19th-century rules. After the summer season, Ohio Village is open for Signature Events, such as All Hallows' Eve and Dickens of a Christmas!
