Experience more than a museum, at The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art, and Technology, central-Ohio’s only destination where you can experience history, art, technology, and glass blowing – all under one roof. Come face-to-face with an Ohio mastodon (and learn his fate!) in The Works’ history exhibits; discover the beautiful work of local artists in The Works’ art gallery; build and race your own race car, or see what’s printing on their 3-D printer, in the interactive science labs; and create your own blown glass with help from a professional glass artist in The Works’ hot glass studio. It’s like visiting four museums for the price of one. Guests can also visit The Works’ restored Ohio-Erie Canal lock, Interurban street car, and refresh in the beautiful courtyard. Visiting The Works is a great family day trip and unique venue for your private party.
