COLLECTING A LEGACY …AND CONTROVERSY

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is nationally accredited. As you behold their remarkable collections, it will dispel notions of a “small town” museum.  Four of their galleries house permanent displays of American Indian (pre-historic Tools and Points and one of the finest collections of Indian basketry in the US), Historic Ohio, Euro-American Decorative Arts(Textiles, lacework, porcelain, glassware, sculpture, china, and dolls) and Asian (Chinese and Japanese artifacts, lacquer, jade, theater masks, and Samurai armor and swords).  A fifth gallery offers temporary exhibits from fine art and craft to local history and world culture. 

Visitors travel from all parts of the world to the JHM to see their collections of national significance, including its Chinese lacquerware, carvings, and ceramics, and American Indian basketry and beadwork.  The museum is also well known for its collection of Ohio prehistoric Indian points and tools. A popular exhibit is the Newark Holy Stones, controversial artifacts uncovered in prehistoric Indian Mounds in the 1860s that are inscribed in Hebrew. 

JHM is handicapped accessible and offers a gift shop with collection-related books, fine crafts, jewelry, and decorative items.
