What Visitors are Saying

An amazing, awe-inspiring experience! It felt a little like going back in time. For all those who donated their memories and their time, thank you so much!
-Melissa, Toledo Ohio

This is where we got married, now we come back for the fun events with our daughter. She especially loves the herb garden!
-Carrie, recent visitor

A walk through memory lane for older adults and an education for younger ones.
-Shirley, Haskins, Ohio

I visited to see the exhibit on the county homes from all 88 counties in Ohio and their history. Since this museum used to be a county home, it was the perfect venue for this. I have visited before so I wasn’t surprised at how well done the exhibition was. The staff was very friendly and informative.
-Linda, recent visitor

Best ‘Tea’ I have ever been to! Highly recommend the Historical Museum for a family visit too. Informative and enjoyable.
