 The Union Forever: An Exhibit of Union Civil War Artifacts

This exhibit highlights the important role Ohio played in the Civil War with every artifact on display representing the greater Cincinnati area. Items include the field desk of Major Robert Joyce of the 93rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, uniform of Captain Henry Mallroy of the 35th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and Saber used by Dr. Henry Langdon, Brigade Surgeon with the 79th Ohio Volunteer Regiment.

This exhibit is the capstone project of Eric Kelso, a graduate student in the Master of Arts Public History program at Northern Kentucky University.


Brilliant Impressions: A Century of Glass

 Heritage Village Museum presents a new exhibit showcasing American glassware in the 19th century. Glass has long been a vital material for both functional and decorative household items. Between 1800 and 1900, the glassmaking industry was revolutionized by the invention of machines to manufacture glass by pressing rather than blowing and decorating it by hand. Pressing allowed greater availability of glassware and a wider array of designs.

This exhibit highlights different variations of glassware, ranging from everyday objects to symbols of economic status.

The exhibit runs through October 23, 2015. Admission is $2/adults, $1/children 5-12. Children under 5 and museum members are free. Exhibit admission is included with the purchase of a guided or self-guided tour.
