“Great Lessons in History and Hospitality”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We showed up on a rainy Saturday afternoon only to learn the Museum was closed because of the wine festival going on that day. The woman who talked to us was sorry, but said the Museum would be open later in the week. When we explained were we from Virginia and would be leaving the next day, she quickly opened the door and invited to look around as much as we wanted. The museum was great and the displays and explanations terrific. But, what we will remember most about our visit was the warm hospitality and friendliness of the staff member who invited us in out of the rain.

“history in a small package”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

it was filled with lots of different things and gave a true feel of all the island has been through. The flag from the Lawrence brig from the Battle of Lake Erie was humbling.

“History of Put-in Bay”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Very interesting and well done. There are a lot of artifacts and large postcard collection. Life on the island must have been challenging for those first settlers.
