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.

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

We were visiting friends in Zanesvillle, OH and they suggested we all go to the museum including their two grand daughters ages six and 12.. Our guide was a retired professor who gave us a wonderful, imaginative tour explaining as we went along about the building of the National Road. The little figures in the lighted displays are very detailed... More

We came here on our way home from our vacation and are thankful we did. The museum features three sections: The National Road, Zane Grey, and Art Pottery. The National Road section features many dioramas depicting the history of the National Road. It has many well done enlarged photos of the road through the years. The actual automobiles on display...

The museum tells the story about Zane Grey, a writer of western related books and stories that were read and published near and afar. You will also learn the history of the national road and what it was like to travel along the road back in the early 1800s. The museum is part of the dozens of facilities across the... More
