WELCOME TO OH WOW!

OH WOW! is a commuunity resource, serving more than 510,913 explorers since opening in May 2011.

Thanks to the support of key investors, OH WOW! 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.

Future investments will see a re-orientation of OH WOW!’s main entrance and facility layout to Market Street that 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!

Gratefully,

Suzanne Barbati, President & Executive Director
