The Mansfield Memorial Museum
About The Museum
The museum is the oldest museum in Richland County founded in 1889. The museum is a step back in time to the late 1800's. Artifacts on 2 floors of displays span from Roman to modern times. The museum houses many collections from early Native American, African, Asian, miliary, and natural history. A display of nearly 600 planes showing the history of aviation is on display.
The Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Building that houses the museum is an architectural wonder unchanged since the building opened in 1889. We are the permanent home of ELEKTRO, the Westinghouse robot built for the 1939 New York World's Fair, oldest Surviving American Robot in the World. Call the museum for any hour changes. We can be open for schools, educational institutions during the week by appointment. Please call for details.
Week day appointments are available for groups of 10 or more, please call the museum for a reservation.
