Several museums are open, including four farm museums housing small farm implements and large equipment, a military museum that exhibits military costumes of different periods, a natural history and archaeology museum, a model railroad museum that house a large collection of H O scale railroad equipment and an operating train layout.

During all special events at AuGlaize Village visitors can observe authentically costumed crafters demonstrating a diverse array of pioneer skills.
