The previous reviews were spot on. Enjoyed the step back in time and all of the museum-style displays. The staff clearly enjoys what they do.

Full of fascinating facts about John Glen. His life in New Concord. The house is shown by his mother (actor) as if you were back in 1937.

An extremely interesting and great place to visit. A lot of history available - informative. Provides a great insight into John Glenn and his wife, Annie's life as well his experiences both in the astronaut program and his political career.

We visited this museum on June 20. The parking is at the back of the house. You will first see a short movie. Then they give you a guided tour of the house. The rooms you will see, will give you an idea how they lived in the 1930's. Upstairs the rooms explain some periods of their lives (astronaut, soldier... More

This is the John Glenn's original house as a boy. We had a living museum tour and it was so much more interesting than just walking through by yourself. Our tour guide was being presented as John Glenn's mother and she was fantastic! You are much more involved when it is told like a story back in May of 1932!... More

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.
