The mission of the Ohio Historical Society, a non-profit organization, is to help people connect with the past in order to understand the present and create a better future. As a part of that effort, our award winning distance learning programming provides an interactive, informative, and engaging experience that differs from the typical classroom activity by bringing history to life while reinforcing the importance of past events with real life experiences.
Explore a variety of cross-disciplinary programming in our three themed styles.
- Interact with first person characters from the past in our Back
In Time series.
- Get the facts from a professional in our Ask the Expert series.
- Test your knowledge of social studies in our So You Know... game show series.
Discover for yourself why schools, libraries, community centers, children’s hospitals, and assisted living facilities across the country and continent connect to the past through a catalog of over 20 programs presented by the Ohio Historical Society.
