You get three museums for one stop here just west of Norwich, Ohio (exit 164 off of I-70, about an hour - 65 miles - east of Columbus). When you get off the Interstate, don't be fooled! Travelling east a very short distance on U.S. 40 (which lies atop the old National Road) you will see Zane Grey Road on... More

On our most recent visit to the national Road we witness the installation of the trail of trees. This is a display of over 30 Christmas trees, helping with the installation were 12 Chinese students from Muskingum University.

The National Road, Zane Grey, and pottery are all covered in this wonderful museum. The best thing about it is the docents. They LOVE what they do. If you like, they'll guide you through the entire museum and tell you all you want to know, and then some. Closing time the day we were there was 4:00, and yet the... More

This museum is divided into three sections: one section dedicated to the historic national road (US 40), another dedicated to Zane Grey, and a third dedicated to art pottery manufactured in Ohio. The whole museum was really interesting and offered so much information about the area. If you're in the area, it's worth a stop.

This museum museum depicts the building of America's first road as we entered our westward expansion phase. The National Road basically parallels the current US route I-70.The museum depicts the building and features of the road especially as it moves through Ohio. There are examples of the vehicles and craftsmen who populated the road. In addition there is a history... More

The staff was really friendly and welcoming. My grand daughter is 4 and they asked her questions and made her feel good about going. It was a fun time for us.

We visited the museum on June 19. There is free parking in front of the museum. They have an impressive diorama which shows you how the National Road evolved in time. When we came in one of the staff gave us an introduction that helped us understand the diorama.

The diorama of the Nat'l rd worth its weight in gold. So much to see in each section, and a bit of humor throughout. Too bad they did not have a booklet of the diorama. The person/s who made it was extremely talented!

Mrs. Too and Ben have had a long-standing interest in the National Highway, since the beginnings of it pass quite near our home. There is apparently quite a resurgence of interest in this early passage across the continent, and its history and importance are showcased here in an intriguing and enlightening manner. At the entrance to the museum, there is... More
