The Museum at Fort Ancient

The Museum at Fort Ancient

Fort Ancient offers exploration and learning both indoors and out. At the Fort Ancient Museum, visitors can look back at the three major technological themes of American Indian culture. The 9,000 square foot facility is divided into three major themes: The First Ohioans (the initial arrival of the earliest American Indians who followed the movement of big game into the  Ohio area), Tillers of the Soil (the transition from hunting and gathering to farming), and When Worlds Collide (first contact

with Europeans). The Museum also offers a hands-onclassroomwith many “touchables” including a small shelter, a drum, and plenty of reproduced artifacts. Just outside the Museum is a seasonal outdoor garden that depicts crops grown 2,000 and 1,000 years ago. Fort Ancient also offers over 2.5 miles of hiking trails, two scenic overlooks and a picnic area. Fort Ancient is currently on the short list for inclusion to be nominated for World Heritage Status, making this unique prehistoric earthwork a global destination.
