There are some spectacular displays that are unbeknownst to most locals and those living in northeast Ohio. Worth taking a couple of hours to appreciate.

The Kent State Fashion Museum is fabulous! They own the Katharine Hepburn exhibit, which has traveled throughout the U.S. A 1920's Flappers exhibit just opened and the garments/dresses are exquisite. It's not too large so you can get through the entire museum (usually 4-6 exhibits...More
