This home is where astronaut John Glenn grew up. The tour is a good balance between the historic home, learning how people lived in the past and the history of John Glenn's career. Very reasonably priced. If you've gone before, plan to go again next year as they are going to update the home to be like it was in... More

The tour, the film, the period acting, portraying life during the war years and learning more about John and Annie Glenn was refreshing, especially now. As individuals and as a couple they are an inspiration and truly represent the "Greatest Generation".

Astronaut John Glenn and wife Annie provide inspiring life stories through video, memorabilia and docent tours. Raised together in the small town of New Concord Ohio, they went forth to capture hearts and minds worldwide.

I stopped expecting this to be a roadside marker and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this site. We found this was the actualy home of John Glenn and it was a staffed home with guides that provided tours. We were greeted promptly and paid a small fee for a tour. Since there was already one in progress we... More

This is a must see very educational very well done. The rumor is they're going to convert the house to 1962 next year. This is when John made history and was the first person ever to orbit the Earth.

The previous reviews were spot on. Enjoyed the step back in time and all of the museum-style displays. The staff clearly enjoys what they do.

Full of fascinating facts about John Glen. His life in New Concord. The house is shown by his mother (actor) as if you were back in 1937.

We visited this museum on June 20. The parking is at the back of the house. You will first see a short movie. Then they give you a guided tour of the house. The rooms you will see, will give you an idea how they lived in the 1930's. Upstairs the rooms explain some periods of their lives (astronaut, soldier... More
