Western Reserve Historical Society Reviews & Ratings

  • Easily the best museum to visit while visiting Cleveland. The Western Reserve Historical Society (WRHS) museum houses the famous Crawford Auto and Aviation Collection and the Cleveland History Center. There is also a small Library in case you want to look up historical documents of from the Western Reserve era. With your museum entrance ticket, you get access to all the exhibits along with two ride tickets for the Euclid Beach Carousel that will be sure to be a hit with the young ones (or those that are young at heart). Although there are other museums in the museum area, the WRHS is uniquely Cleveland, and can't be found anywhere else in the world. Thus, the highest recommendation from us.

  • So fun and had really cool stuff to see but The one lady at the gift-shop was really rude and complaining about how people were taking wedding pictures on the carousel!!

  • One of the best places to go in Cleveland with young kids. Very fun play area, tons of cars, and a CAROUSEL! We parked at the Natural History Museum and just crossed the street to go in. So fun!

  • Wonderful, modern museum with lots of great history on the city of Cleveland, old cars and the old Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel that you can ride twice with a paid admission. The mansion tour is nicely done and full of interesting artifacts from different time periods.

  • What an unknown gem of a museum! The fact it is made from two historic houses and has an indoor carousel sets it apart from any other museums across the country. They have interesting features for children up to older adults. The working carousel is handicap accessible and the day we were there a group of people boarded on their wheelchairs to enjoy multiple rides. It warmed our hearts. We will bring our tour groups back for a visit.
