We went to this park as part of a field trip. It was so much fun that the kids have been asking to go back. So many things to see and do there. Highly recommend this for Ohio history reports or things like that. The staff was fully engaged and extremely helpful.

This has been a great place all my life! So when I was married there on the bridge and had my dream reception in the travel museum I was delighted, On our 1st anniversary my husband surprised me with a vow renewal under the bells. We love this place and eat at the brewery often!

We first visited Carillon Historical Park during the Christmas season. We had no idea such a great collections of history was located so close to us. Entire buildings have been moved there,containing tons of information and period-items. It is a history VILLAGE. I cannot wait to go back and visit it again. Although the Christmas-time visit may become a tradition... More
