Great place to visit - a lot of information available about how the Route was developed to make it easier for west bound traveling along with many historic items - conastoga wagon, model T - just to name a few as well as a lot of history about Zane Grey

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

We were set to go to the Wilds near Zanesville and had some time to spend before so we found this museum. We vaguely knew who he was, but it was very interesting- very small museum. Zane Grey wrote a lot of the first American Western stories and became the first millionaire writer. It also had a museum of the... More

This small space focusing on three topics unique to the area. Zane Grey his father the national road tracer. And the poetry collection (ornamental ) famous for the area. Take your time sit and watch video. The ZANES father and grandfather were famous. Remember Zanesville was Not named after Zane Grey the writer.
