Permanent Exhibit Phase 1

We are thrilled to announce that Phase One of our Permanent Exhibits will be available for viewing in August at the Carnegie Center. Phase One will feature the Lorain Lighthouse and Lorain Industry, including U. S. Steel, the Ford Motor Company, and the American Shipbuilding Company.

A special thank you to the State of Ohio Governor’s Budget for the grant that allowed us to begin this multi-faceted project.

Thanks to Jan McKay & Associates for the design work (Jan is a Lorain native) and Benchmark Craftsmen, Inc. for the exhibit fabrication.

A special VIP + Member Preview is set for August 8, and the General Public Opening is set for August 11. More specific details will be released via mail, print, and digital media in the near future.

Please Note: The Carnegie Center will be closed for tours and visits to the Children’s History Center from July 23 - August 8 to allow for the uninterrupted installation of this spectacular exhibit. The Administrative Offices and the Gift Shop will remain open.
