“Hands on history” best describes our approach to public education and outreach. Throughout the year, we provide fun and inventive ways to teach students of all ages about Mahoning Valley history. It really comes to life during our summer programming series, Hands On History Open House. To see all the faces discovering unique facts about our area, while doing creative activities, proves the value of our MVHS mission.
