The headquarters of the nonprofit Ohio Historical Society, the Ohio Historical Center abounds with exhibits and activities that showcase the state's diverse social, natural, and archeological history. Built in 1970, the museum's towering Brutalist edifice is a piece of history itself, lauded as "bold" and "imaginative” by the American Institute of Architects. Inside, a 15,000-square-foot gallery explores pivotal moments in the Buckeye State’s past, examining everything from Ohio’s role in the Civil War to Boomer Esiason’s stint as Secretary of State. A natural-history exhibit regales guests with interactive displays of animals, plants, and geography. In addition to its permanent exhibits, the center hosts an ever-changing selection of featured exhibits and special events.

Outside the museum sits Ohio Village, a re-creation of a Civil War–era town. Costumed villagers bustle about the square, performing chores and activities of the era, such as churning butter and checking wooden PalmPilots. The town's 15 buildings showcase the height of 19th-century architecture and include a Gothic-revival church, a large town hall, and an open market. The village is also the home of the renowned Ohio Village Muffins, who regularly compete in games of baseball played by 19th-century rules.

When Dru Silver isn't touring America with his band Locusta—a trek the group has made five times—he draws on his more than 10-year career to teach budding guitarists at Guitar Lessons Columbus. He starts slow with kids, not only helping each pupil have fun mastering a favorite song they like, but also preventing them from falling through their acoustic guitar's hole. With older students, whether they're beginners or advanced shredders, he personalizes lessons around each pupil's goals and interests, whether it's notating favorite songs by ear or learning to improvise solos. Those skills come in handy during the other activities Dru curates for his students, including jam sessions, recording sessions, and live concerts.
