Earlier this week, the Ohio Museum Association awarded Mansfield’s Little Buckeye Children’s Museum their highest honor for museums in the state of Ohio: Institution of the Year.
“It is thrilling and humbling to receive such a prestigious award from the Ohio Museum Association! We have experienced tremendous growth in the last two years with new exhibits and over 50,000 visitors yearly to the museum,” said Fred Boll, Executive Director.
This statewide award recognizes outstanding institutional accomplishments in the field of Ohio museums. Little Buckeye was chosen for this award out of all Ohio Museum Association members, which includes the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, COSI, Duke Energy Children’s Museum, Cleveland Art Institute, and many more. “It is an outstanding honor and a privilege to be included among the biggest and best museums in the state,” said Jason Guilliams, Little Buckeye Board President.
Little Buckeye has been a leader in the revitalization of downtown Mansfield by adding over $2.5 million in yearly economic impact.
