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

The Ohio History Center is the headquarters of the Ohio History Connection. While visiting the Ohio History Center, here are just a few of the adventures you can have:

  • 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. Click here to learn all about the exhibits at the Ohio History Center.
  • 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 is included with general admission to the Ohio History Center. Starting in 2016, Ohio Village will transform into an 1890s town! During the summer, stroll through the village or stop by to see the Ohio Village Muffins play a vintage base ball match. After the summer season, Ohio Village is open for Signature Events, such as All Hallows' Eve and Dickens of a Christmas!
