“home of the two-headed calf!”

From automobiles to wedding gowns, the Ohio Historical Society’s history collections document both the ordinary and extraordinary stories of Ohioans. The Society collects, preserves, catalogs, manages and makes available to the public a vast collection of about 1.6 million objects in its museums across Ohio, and in its flagship museum in the Ohio History Center. Additionally, serving as the State Archives, allows people to discover the stories of the Ohioans who built our state’s farms, industries, businesses, schools, churches, social organizations, governments, and communities. A full taxidermy of a two-headed calf is on display at the Ohio Historical Society, and they have a living history village! The Ohio Historical Society's mission is to spark discovery of Ohio history! We help people connect with Ohio’s past to understand the present and create a better future.

This is a fun place to spend a day! They have great exhibits on Ohio's past and natural history, and they even have a historical village with costumed interpreters!
