Museums in Ohio
Ohio is a state in the Midwestern United States, and it is the seventh most populous state in the USA. The state’s capital and its largest city are Columbus, followed by Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Toledo. Ohio is historically known as the “Buckeye State” after its Ohio buckeye trees.
The state takes its name from the Ohio River, whose name, in turn, originated from the Seneca word ohiːyo’, meaning “great river.” Partitioned from the Northwest Territory, Ohio was the 17th state admitted to the Union in 1803.
Ohio became the first non-colonial free state admitted to the Union to an industrial powerhouse in the 20th century before transitioning to a more information and service-based economy in the 21st.
The state of Ohio has some fabulous museums, and we intend to provide virtual tours of the best museums in the state.

In New York, how much is he worth?
In Philadelphia, who were his parents?”
