A look at Sandusky's history

This mansion turned museum has an amazing areay of historical artifacts. Not really much of a theme to it all, just a hodgepodge of cool stuff. If you have kids or are looking for a more hands on and accessible experience, try the maritime museum or the merry go round museum. Non historians may be jaded but it is worth... More

The house itself was very cool to see. There were several rooms set up from the time period, and those were neat to see. That's what I was expecting from the whole house, but it was only a couple rooms. Otherwise, most rooms felt like walking through an antique shop, with a hodgepodge of stuff from different eras. It was... More

This museum seemed to be just rooms filled with various antiques from many different eras rather than displaying the house as it had been in the time period that it was built and lived in. It was still interesting as we love history, but I am glad admission was free. It would have been disappointing otherwise.

The Library Association does a great job keeping alive some of Sandusky's history in this wonderful, old home. Some items are personal to the Follett family, but many of the displays are more broadly indicative of the history of the area. A great asset to Sandusky.

My kids are a little young for this tour, but my wife and I loved it. The displays are good, but the house is amazing. It isn't a huge place, but they packed in a lot of history. You need to visit at least once. They have a good amount of local history and welcome all ages.

The house is a wonderful example of mid-19th century Greek Revival architecture. The exibits inside are interesting as well. There are some mid-1800's textitles, which I enjoy to look at. Overall you will find lots of local history info packed inside a cool old building.
