The Western Reserve Historcical Society is one of three Museums. The History Library has one of the finest genealogy collections in the world, as well as excellent collections of manuscripts, prints, and photographs. I have spent many hours there culling the wonderful books, films, fiche, manuscripts etc, tracing my family history.
The other two museums are:
The History Museum contains an extensive collection of American antique furniture and decorative arts displayed in 20 period rooms. A new wing features constumes of various periods.
The Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum exhibits more than 130 antique and classic automobiles, motorcycles, and aircraft.
