If you want to save money while learning about your ancestors’ lives, you’ll want to know about Museum Day Live! on Saturday, Sept. 26, organized by Smithsonian magazine.
You’ll need to download your tickets before Sept. 26. You can get one ticket per registered account, and your ticket covers admission for two people.
I searched for Museum Day Live! participating history museums in Ohio (leaving the ZIP code blank) and a bunch are near enough to visit, including the Glendower Historic Mansion and Garden (which also is having its Civil War encampment on Museum Day weekend), the Betts House, the Cincinnati Fire Museum and the Ohio History Center.
