In addition David Warther, a living related carver has a studio nearby. He also carves in Ivory focusing on ships. Well worth some time. Taking route 557 south out of Berlin will take you through the Doughty Creek Valley... More
In addition David Warther, a living related carver has a studio nearby. He also carves in Ivory focusing on ships. Well worth some time. Taking route 557 south out of Berlin will take you through the Doughty Creek Valley to Charm Ohio. Millers Baker and the Guggisberg Cheese Factory are not to be missed. An afternoon in Downtown Millersburg is time well spent.

Although the guided tour lasts approximately one hour, you can also tour Warthers home, his wife's button house and the gardens. The tour moved along at a fairly good pace (not unreasonably so). Once the guide was done speaking we moved to the next room. I would have liked to stay and look at some of the displays a little longer. But, the nice part about the admission is that it is for all day. So you could easily go back to the parts of the museum you missed.
Fun for the kids - Warther built a little cave in the retaining wall of the property for his kids. There is also a gift shop. We spent probably 2-3 hours there.
