  • Very interesting history and art, as well as unique exhibits coming out every now and then! The gardens could use work here and there but honestly the place is very nice with beautiful works that are always changing! A must-see if you visit Columbus!
  • This has been one of my favorite places to take my kids since they were toddlers and that was over 20 years ago. Today my third child (23) and I explored the gardens that beautifully grace the museum grounds. Wish we had come a week or two sooner when the azaleas were in full bloom.
  • Beautiful paintings and such extensive information about Columbus and surrounding cities. I loved the interactive games for children and the displays of actual items of history.
  • Beauuutiful place..very relaxing and informational center..you should check it out asap..awwwwweeeesssoommmeee
  • Great family friendly museum. I especially love the children's interactive area downstairs.
