Add This to Your Bucket List: The Honda Museum in Ohio
Automotive manufacturers like Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Ford and Chrysler have some awesome museums here and abroad. Now you can add the Honda Museum in Marysville, Ohio to your bucket list. It’s easy to go all hipster and look down on the concept of a museum celebrating the Honda Civic, but we’ll resist the obvious snide comments. Instead let’s focus on some of the positive elements of the Honda Heritage Center. RELATED: See more photos of the 1967 Honda N600
The museum, part of the new $35 million, 160,000-square-foot heritage center, shows a “visible evolution of the motorcycles, automobiles and power equipment on display.” It also takes a close look at Honda’s racing history.
You can also see a preliminary version of the Acura NSX supercar, which is being built in Marysville and will go on sale next year. At the same time, you can also see the N600, Honda’s first car in the U.S., which is about as far from the NSX as one can get in the same car lineup.

It’s not all about old stuff either. The museum honors groundbreaking new Honda technologies such as a replica of the humanoid robot ASIMO and the HondaJet, which will begin customer deliveries in 2015.
The museum officially opens in January. Make it a New Year’s resolution if you happen to be in Marysville. It’s northwest of Columbus and northeast of Dayton. Call 937-644-6888 for information on the Honda Heritage Center including hours of operation and to schedule visits. Tours will be conducted by reservation only.
