History Passport a Fun New Tool for Explorers
This summer, you have a new way to record your memories when you visit the Ohio Historical Society’s 58 sites and attractions with the Passport to Your Ohio History. Fill up your passport by receiving special “I Visited” stickers at each site and answering treasure-hunt-style questions related to the historic venues.
Explore Ohio, a state rich with stories of Native American and African American culture, 19th century life, ancient earthworks, presidential heritage, space travel and more.
Become the author of your own story as you use the journaling sections to record your experiences. Enjoy your visits. Have fun while you learn. And don’t miss the chance to capture a memorable adventure that is uniquely yours!
Complete your Passport with all 58 validation stickers and be inducted into the Passport to Your Ohio History Hall of Fame.
