Area museums that are participating include Fort Meigs in Perrysburg, the Fulton County Museum in Wauseon, the Wood County Historical Center in Bowling Green, the Merry-Go-Round Museum in Sandusky, the Milan Museum and the Thomas Edison birthplace, both in Milan, Ohio, and the Armstrong Air and Space Museum in Wapakoneta.
