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

While driving thru Ohio on our way to Columbus, we saw the exit sign for "John Glenn's Childhood Home". My husband and I agreed it might be fun, and it had to be interesting, so we got off the highway and headed to his home in New Concord Village. Such a pleasant surprise and a wonderful experience for both of... More

New Concord is less than 30 minutes off 77 and worth a stop to see the childhood home of John Glenn. The visit starts with a very informative film of the life of John and Annie Glenn. It helps you appreciate the couples impressive life accomplishments and the small town that gave them their start. The tour of the home... More

I had decided to leave the Interstate for a much more enjoyable pace of the Historic National Road, which took me through the Village of New Concord, where I found the John and Annie Glenn Museum. This unplanned stop allowed me to tour the boyhood home of astronaut and U. S. Senator John Glenn. The tour is based on the... More
