Northwest Ohio is home to the only Union Army Civil War prison specifically designed to house captured Confederate officers. Johnson's Island Civil War Prison continues to reveal tantalizing details about the war and the men who fought and died. This exhibit focuses on additional information learned through archaeological evidence discovered since the 1965 publication of "Rebels on Lake Erie," the seminal history of the prison written by Charles E. Frohman. Numerous artifacts recovered from the site in recent years are on display. The museum is CLOSED on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. The museum is OPEN on Presidents’ Day (Feb 16) with special hours: 12-5 pm.

Caryl Crane Youth Theatre rings in the New Year with Broadway's favorite relative, AUNTIE MAME! This classic Jerry Herman musical centers around Mame Dennis, a well-to-do eccentric without a care in the world until she becomes the guardian of her ten-year-old nephew, Patrick. Now it’s up to her to open new windows and show the boy worlds he never knew existed. Through the Roaring 20s and the Great Depression, Mame teaches Patrick how to “live, live, live”—whether he’s willing or not. It’s the dazzling musical that proves life’s a banquet, featuring the classic songs “We Need a Little Christmas,” “It’s Today,” “Bosom Buddies” and, of course, “Mame.” Recommended for children ages 8 and up. Rated PG.
