Support Our Museums

Join Friends of the Museums and help keep our treasured Campus Martius and Ohio River Museums open!

Friends of the Museums is a non-profit organization that is managing both the Ohio River Museum and the Campus Martius Museum on behalf of the Ohio History Connection. New local management allows the museums to be open more days and improve visitor services.

Your membership with the Friends of the Museums will also provide more community involvement and will help ensure both museums continue to be sources of community pride. Friends of the Museums are committed to preserving and presenting the past in a way that informs and enlightens, intrigues and enriches, and helps people understand their own place in history.
