“be immersed in yesteryears”

The 9,000 square foot facility is divided into three major themes: The First Ohioans (the initial arrival of the earliest American Indians who followed the movement of big game into the Ohio area), Tillers of the Soil (the transition from hunting and gathering to farming), and When Worlds Collide (first contact with Europeans). The Museum also offers a hands-on classroom with many “touchables” including a small shelter, a drum, and plenty of reproduced artifacts. Just outside the Museum is a seasonal outdoor garden that depicts crops grown 2,000 and 1,000 years ago. Fort Ancient also offers over 2.5 miles of hiking trails, two scenic overlooks and a picnic area. Fort Ancient is currently on the short list for inclusion to be nominated for World Heritage Status, making this unique prehistoric earthwork a global destination.

We took our 5 and 11 year old here prior to hiking the Fort Ancient Trails. The artifacts and signage taught the kids (and adults) about the culture of the Native Americans and the history of their demise. We spent about an hour walking around. Could have spent more time if the kids had longer attention spans. Really enjoyed this!
