Such a fine Museum! The exhibits of silver, furniture, glass and art are so well put together, one of the highlights from my recent business trip to Columbus - truly a treasure!

This is a great place to visit if you have a live for the arts. It was filled with Columbus memorabilia as well. They have exhibits that do change so make sure to check those out before they are gone!

You visit a place that takes you back in time. The Museum allows you to find out about the Indian groups from this area; the rural schools; the products produced in the area; how people lived and survived. The visit is well worth it.

Nice new museum. It has a nice children's area where they can interact with a wide variety of art focused activities. We went on a Sunday afternoon and had no issues with crowds. Kids (3 and 6) were fully engaged for almost two hours.

On their web site, they state that they are closed on major holidays. New Year's Day would qualify as a major holiday.
