    OHIO Museum Complex Self-Guided Activities

    The OHIO Museum Complex (OMC) is home to a broad range of self-guided activities for K-12 and general public audiences. An immersive nature gallery on the second floor of Lin Hall houses an exhibition entitled Through the Appalachian Forest, featuring self-guided exploration of connections across nature, art, geography and history—with immersive nature sounds and hands on arts activities that change from week to week.

    Explore OMC’s Outdoor Museum visitor area which begins just outside the front door of the museum, with a pollinator garden and an interpretive trail system that encourages outdoor experiential learning in a beautiful parklike setting spanning 700 acres on The Ridges.

    OMC’s web-based app (mAppAthens) features dozens of tours curated by local experts on a variety of topics, from history to poetry, nature to wellbeing, that enable unique exploration of the campus and community.
