  • We spent over 4 hr here and we could of stayed longer to see everything. We have 3- 11yr olds, 1-7yr,1-5yr,1-3yr old and they all had so much fun. The 50's house was the place to be. So interactive. You can play with everything in the house. This place is a blast from the past for us that are 50 and older. Pick up the phone and here conversation s and even a party line. Remember thatšŸ˜. The girls loved dressing up in the 50"s clothes. The village was fun also and the clothing shop was another place to dress up and take your own pics. Get a mock shave at the barber shop, play with old toys at the toy store, visit the school and ring the bell for school to begin. Also in the museum was a log cabin and a set up of a typical living room with mock fireplace the kids played for 45min there pretending to fix a meal, churn butter, spin yarn. NOTE there is no food there so pack a picnic lunch and go to the 2ed floor of museum to eat. Enjoy old cars and airplanes while you eat. HAVE FUN.
  • Great historical village. Indoor exhibits are exceptional..Lustron home and Native American relics to name just a few. Also plenty of hands on activities.
  • Amazing museum with a variety of Ohio's histories attractively displayed. Once I stepped in, I was drawn to go to every room and look at the fascinating displays, facts, and articles of history. Great experience for families and friends!
  • Such a cool and interesting area! Went with my girlfriend and it was a lot of fun to just walk around and see everything
  • My gps struggle to find this location not sure what/who to blame for that. I enjoy this place and will visit again.

Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near theĀ Interstate exits.
