Visiting the Museum


The Museum is normally open to the public between 1:00 and 5:00 PM weekdays. Due to staffing considerations, we recommend that you e-mail us at

or call us at 419-352-5616 to let us know you’re coming.


Our restored machines are normally stored inside the Museum building, and equipment to be restored is parked outside. A tour of the Museum building takes about 45 minutes, and you are free to explore the outdoor exhibits on your own. You can take as many photographs as you want; we just ask that you don’t climb on the equipment. The Museum building is insulated but does not have climate control, so dress appropriately in event of temperature extremes.


Admission rates are:

  • HCEA Members: Free admission
  • Non-members, 60 or older: $7.00
  • Non members, 13 to 60: $10.00
  • 12 or under: Free admission.

Group rates of $7.00 per non-member over 12 are available for groups of 10 or more, provided the group has booked its visit in advance.


Donations in addition to admission fees are greatly appreciated. All proceeds go to our Building Fund.
