Visiting the collection of museums and exhibits was a very nice way to spend a few hours. The antique automobiles were quite interesting, and I liked the focus on local manufacturers. I had no idea there were so many early auto companies in the Cleveland area. We also took a guided tour of the mansion, which was informative, and the... More

The Western Reserve Historical Society does a great job with touching on a very wide selection of local history. Visitors walk away knowing more than when they walked in. Yet it would be nice if the Museum selected some topics to give more expansive exhibits on. The staff is professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The Museum can easily be visited over... More

We visited the Western Reserve Historical Museum on a cold Saturday in January. Traffic was light and we could freely move around the various displays and collections. Even as adults we enjoyed the carousel ride which brought back memories of previous rides when I was a child. This is a great way to get the vibe on Cleveland's past industrial... More

This was a fun day out. My son (9) and daughter (12) both found things to be interested in and enjoyed the carousel more than I thought they would! There variety of things: cars, clothing, the mansion, train, kids area... it was a nice mix to keep them interested. We were a bit old for the kids area, but looked... More

The Western Reserve Historical Society runs the Cleveland History Center. The museum is set up in former residences that were owned by industrial Cleveland's elite. The center has several sections: auto/aviation (Crawford auto/aviation museum), garments section, kidzibits, the historical home with interior made up in several eras, and rotating exhibit space with local history as the focus. The current exhibits... More

So much to see at the museum. See how a 20th century mansion household ran and what life looked like for the elite as well as those who worked for them. Great displays that change but that shed light on American Culture.
