The John & Annie Glenn Historic Site in New Concord, OH (Glenns' hometown) has a superb "living history" approach. When you enter, you'll be transported back to 1944 when John Glenn was in WW II and the Glenn family was making ends meet (they had a boarder in their home.) I can't think of another museum where the homefront sacrifices... More

As a private pilot, as well as an aspiring and ultimately successful fighter pilot, Ben has been a hero worshipping fan of John Glenn since way before his selection to the seven original astronauts. He was an extremely accomplished aviator while Ben was still in high school, and carried on through his career piling on one difficult achievement after another.... More

My friend and I were spending some together and decided to go visit the John and Annie Glenn House in New Concord, Ohio. Since I live in Zanesville I had driven by it several times but had never visited there before. When we first went in the people who worked there were very friendly and greeted us warmly. They were... More

Really enjoyed visiting the John & Annie Glenn's house. I learned a lot about them both. When you take the tour you are bought back to 1944. The lady tour guide donated the telegram her parents got when her brother was killed over in WWII.

My son and I were driving on the freeway nearby and saw the sign for the historic site. We are both huge fans of John and Annie Glenn so we decided to take a detour. The tour was absolutely enjoyable and the ladies operating the site that day were all very knowledgeable. I would definitely return for a second visit.

Sadly they were closed when we were in the area, but we walked around and took a few photos. It is right on main street and is very well maintained. I would certainly return during operating hours to look around and see where John Glenn grew up.

I have to admit, I did earn a lot while here. They take you on a trip through John's childhood and then onto his later life. It was a fun learning experience, yet it could be better.

Traveling through on I-70, we planned to stop here and we are so glad we did. My husband, 10 yr old son and I are big NASA/Space geeks. The admission was reasonable and the tour was really cute. We began by watching a film about John and Annie Glenn. This room also had lots of informative posters about their life.... More

Neat little museum & historic home in New Concord. Visitor center had a nice collection of Glenn artifacts and a good retrospective film on his career and accomplishments- I learned quite a bit. The living history part of the program was unique and gives visitors an accurate look at life during World War II... although my guided tour went on... More
