​Our newly renovated Kids' Discovery area provides an opportunity for everyone to experience history firsthand. Stop by to explore numerous games, farm table, doll house or try out type writers, adding machines, and corded telephones. Family friendly activities are featured at monthly Open House.

Our new Museum library is assembling a large collection of Historical Records, Books, Newspapers, and Photos and would like your help. We would like to include your collections of memorabilia, photographs, genealogical records, stories, and other information associated with Reynoldsburg heritage. We can scan them and return to you. Consider our files a resource for your search into Reynoldsburg and Truro Township History.
