We caught the membership exhibit which was fun. A huge variety of many cutting edge pieces. The gift shop is really cool and cost me money! According to the volunteer, they also offer classes. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

If you want a unique gift, then the Ohio Craft Museum offers one-of-a-kind crafts made by Ohio craftspeople. I thought the prices were a little steep, but since I do stained glass art, I do realize how much time is needed to make quality items....More

The name is a misnomer. The exhibits are usually more "art" than "craft". It is a one room gallery of art by mostly Ohio artists. They usually have 4-5 exhibits a year. There is a research library and they offer workshops for all ages and...More

This is a very small museum. Basically one room. But the glass exhibit was beautiful. I just expect more when you say you are a museum. Seems to be in a weird location as well. Would have loved to see more featuring Ohio artists. Not...More

I had the pleasure of visiting the Ohio Craft Museum during the past spring's Ohio Designer Craftsmen’s 33rd annual juried members’ exhibition. The work was incredible: wood, glass, metal, fiber of all sorts. The imagination behind many of the pieces makes me really aware that...More

What a strange and wonderful place this craft museum is! It's small enough see everything--and then there's the extraordinary gift shop. Just stop in there if you're looking for a special gift for someone; there's no admission charge.

Exhibitions vary and gift shop has exceptional merchandise. It is a little gem in Grandview, but maybe not advertised as widely as it could be.
