  • Over the years I have visited many times on many occasions. Have attended meetings, private tours, fund raisers for the museum and others, even a wedding.Each experience reveals new information and ne...  more »
  • Excellent time capture of the Northwest Territory's significance to the growth of America. The basement museum chronicling the economic migration from Appalachia was a bonus not replicated elsewhere. 
  • This is the first Museum built around a historic building instead of being moved to a Museum. Never knew much about the area, guide was very informative. 
  • Even though Marietta is a small town this small Museum has a lot of history of how Ohio was discovered before it became a state.
  • A surprisingly nice little museum. Being a smaller town in a rural area, you might expect it to be a little crappy but it's not! Clean, well maintained, and some great exhibits if you're interested in how westward expansion played out in Ohio. When I was there, they also had a non-permanent Civil War exhibit on loan upstairs. If you're from the area or just driving through, definitely a place to check out if you're into history and learning.
  • Wonderful early photography exhibit now on display. Journey back to 1788 in the Rufus Putnam home. Enjoy coming here as I always find a new treasure to relish, and learn another nugget of local history and our nation's early westward migration.
  • It was so cool go to it
  • I have been going to this museum for years and it has always been great. In more recent years, OHS has actually has built more exhibits. If you haven't been to the museum in the last five years you haven't been. Pros: Easy to find, cheap, cool new exhibits in the basement and great learning experience for young and old.
