The OHIO Museum Complex is a place to learn through play, outdoor programming and reflection. We use a teaching museum model to enhance science literacy and to promote health and wellness for the Ohio University community, southeastern Ohio and throughout Appalachia. 

The Complex boasts an indoor/outdoor museum experience with dynamic exhibit galleries, learning laboratories, and the Outdoor Museum trail system, with waypoints of interest throughout the campus and region. 

The first new gallery in Lin Hall was renovated with funds from the Konneker Fund for Learning and Discovery. Innovation Strategy funds were leveraged for developing the Outdoor Museum.  

The OHIO Museum Complex is a museum without boundaries between traditional academic disciplines, sparking curiosity, creativity, and problem-solving. 

Your gifts are essential as we expand collections and research laboratory space. Grant funding provides additional resources for educational programming.
