Free piece of history
Oct 2018 • Couples
First-this museum was free! We spent over an hour reading and viewing the exhibits. The volunteer didn’t hover over us but was readily available to answer all of our questions. The mechanical village (2nd floor) was mesmerizing!

Worth a stop
Jun 2018 • Friends
We were curious about what makes the town tick, and our questions were answered here. Our visit began inauspiciously - we arrived well after the internet-advertised opening time of 9 am and found the door firmly locked, lights out and a UPS package leaning against the doorframe. We called the number listed on the website, left a message and went on our way. About an hour later we got a callback, an apology alluding to a staff meeting and an assurance that someone would be there. We returned and got an informative 45 min tour. The guide, a college student from out of the area working at the museum for the summer, had done her homework well and we left feeling we knew a lot more about Loudonville.

Nice Displays
Jul 2017 • Couples
Free to enter!! There was a very nice display of all kinds of old stuff and history of the area. I lived close by for 15 years and never once went. Almost 10 years later I came back and finally visited only to realize what I missed so long ago!

Informational

Very informational about the area's history. I also found that there was a lake called "Odell Lake" which happens to be my maiden name. I thought that was very interesting. Learning the history of the town helps to identify landmarks in the area.

Wonderful Small Town Museum
Aug 2015 • Family
While on a visit home with my son, who is a history buff, we decided to visit the museum. I had not been there for several years. It was wonderful! My son had an awesome time and got to ask questions and touch everything. The museum was not open but we called and the curator met us there in about 30 minutes and showed us around. It was just awesome! I cannot say enough about this great museum! Love my hometown and all it offers!

Price is right for great mueum
Jul 2016 • Family
Passed through Loudonville on way to Holmes County, saw the museum was open, and decided to stop. Admission is free (donations accepted), so I wouldn't be out any time or money if it wasn't worth it. I'm glad I went in because for a small local museum they did an excellent job of preserving and interpreting the history of the area. There were historical scenes. weapons, quilts, and a special exhibit of high quality wood carvings ( carousel animals and wildlife) by a local artist. Inventor and industry titan Charles Kettering (electric starter) was from Loudonville. He held more patents than anyone except Thomas Edison (also from Ohio- you can tour his birthplace in Milan). Loudanville was also the home of Excl bus company until it was a victim of corporate mergers and folded in 1993.
