Nice historical museum with lots to see inside the building and on the grounds. A lot of local history to see and learn. Nice to see and old oil rig set up a lot to learn about the past oil history of the local area. Been here a few other times and would normally always give it 5 stars but this visit the entire museum was converted to a WW1 theme which we didn't enjoy quite as much. Looking forward to seeing the originally set up come back. Plenty of parking and is very reasonable admission into the museum

We were there for the WWI exhibit. A lot of information, educational, inexpensive and a historical Ohio landmark. The grounds are well kept & docents are very welcoming.
