Midwest Living Review

Tucked-away at the south end of Roscoe Village, this museum is home to an exceptional collection of American Indian and Asian art and artifacts.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum does not completely fit in with the 19th-century canal town theme of Historic Roscoe Village, but its surprisingly extensive collection of Asian and American Indian art is worth the stop. The museum was created in 1931, when two bachelor brothers from Coshocton left an impressive personal collection of Asian and American Indian art and artifacts to the town. Today, that collection fills two of the museum's four permanent galleries. The other two galleries have more of a historical-society feel, with displays focused on Ohio's history. The museum also has a special exhibit gallery where it hosts traveling exhibits from around the region, the country and abroad; special exhibits change every two to three months, so call ahead for details. The 2010 exhibits include "Ties that Bind: Quilts from Coshocton County" and "Coshocton Collects." The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is the perfect size for visitors who only have an hour or two to spend but don't want to miss any of the details of a museum's collection. Admission charged ($3); discounted admission is available at Roscoe Village's visitors center.
