  • Ohio Historical Society
    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.

Follow the legend's lifelong golf journey in the Decades of Nicklaus gallery, where each 10-year segment of Nicklaus' life—from his boyhood days in the '40s to his modern-day stardom—is embodied through a collection of memorable artifacts, including clubs, trophies, scorecards, and more.

But guided tours aren't the only way to experience the museum. The museum also offers an audio tour enhanced with a musical score and period-appropriate sound effects, such as clocks chiming and bells ringing to call the family to dinner.
