Garst Museum is Celebrating

The readers of Ohio Magazine have spoken and Garst Museum has joined the ranks of their annual “Best of Ohio” 2015 publication as “The Best Historical Museum.” This honor casts a positive light on the efforts of the dedicated Garst Staff and Volunteers as well as Director, Dr. Clay Johnson who has spent the past five years leading the museum’s efforts to preserve and promote the history of Darke County.

“It is an honor to be chosen “Best of Ohio” and it has really added an air of excitement throughout the museum,” remarked Dr. Johnson. “The opportunity to bring more attention to this regional museum illustrates that we are on the right track.” Dr. Johnson and his staff plan to continue upholding the favor of their visitors by adding more opportunities to interact with many of the resources and collections held at the museum including the Free Lectures Series, Outreach Education Programs, the Gathering at Garst festival, and the Darke County Research Center. “As the repository for the historical events and figures of this region that have had a national as well as an international impact, the Garst Museum provides each visitor with the opportunity to experience a wide range of eras from the earliest days of pioneer exploration and settlement to the local legends and heroes of the 19th thru 21st centuries, including Annie Oakley, Lowell Thomas, and Bronze Star recipient Douglas Dickey to name a few” added Dr. Johnson.

The Celebration will continue throughout 2015 and you can be a part of it. The Garst Museum is open Tuesday thru Saturday from 10am to 4pm and Sundays from 1pm to 4pm. Admission is $8.00 for Adults, $7.00 for Seniors (60+), $5.00 for youth (6-17), Free for Children 5 & Under and Free for all Museum Members.
