WELCOME TO OH WOW!

We are a community resource, serving more than 356,898 explorers since opening in May 2011.

We have been successful because of your support and the support of hundreds of individuals, foundations and corporations who believe that an investment in our children, their children, and their grandchildren is an investment in our community’s future.

On behalf of our volunteer Board of Directors, thank you!  We invite you to begin your journey of “EDUtainment” today and look forward to your next visit!

Gratefully,

Suzanne Barbati, President & Executive Director
