Take A Tour

To tour the Museum is to take an illuminating stroll through the centuries. Our collections chronicle lives lived, wars waged, fortunes won and ingenuity rewarded. Walk among our exhibits and you will discover history for the ages in close proximity with the history of the everyday. The “getting of history” is a dynamic pursuit. With that charge firmly in mind, the collection of the OCHM is constantly evolving.

Come see what’s new with a tour of the Museum.
