WELCOME TO OH WOW!TM
OH WOW!TM is a community resource, serving more than one million explorers since our opening in 2011.
Thanks to the support of key investors, OH WOW!TM recently purchased our long-time home, the historic McCrory Building! This purchase creates a “mission control” in the heart of downtown Youngstown and the Valley for generations to come.
Construction to re-orient OH WOW!TM‘s main entrance and facility layout to Central Square is complete. This will increase access and ensure safety for thousands of visitors each year while increasing the vibrancy of downtown’s Central Square Plaza.
On behalf of our volunteers, Board of Directors, and staff, we thank you for your support! We invite you to continue your journey of “EDUtainment” today and look forward to your next visit! We are now open!
Suzanne Barbati, President & Executive Director
