Ohio Craft Museum

Ohio Craft Museum

1665 W. Fifth Ave. | Columbus


The recently renovated Ohio Craft Museum offers visitors a fresh new look for exhibiting its main staple: Ohio Craftsmen. The museum presents five major exhibitions each year, plus numerous exhibits and a rotating display of its permanent collection.

The Ohio Craft Museum is not a history museum of crafts. It is an exhibition of contemporary craftsmen. The museum opened its doors to the public in 1993 and became the main display case for Ohio Designers Craftsmen, an organization founded in 1963 that promotes public awareness of professional artisans.

The museum also houses the Craft Research Library and offers educational workshops and events for all ages and levels of experience. Ohio Designer Craftsmen also sponsors 4 major art sales each year that feature artists from across the country and works that include ceramics, metal, jewelry, photography, painting, glass and more.
