Mansfield has many cultural and recreational facilities to offer such as our Carrousel, the first wooden carved carrousel made in the United States since the 1930’s. The world renowned botanical gardens of Kingwood Center offer 47 acres of horticultural beauty. The Mansfield Art Center’s annual exhibition schedule includes a mix of curated, juried, invitational and traveling exhibitions. Our Renaissance Theatre provides world class entertainment such as Broadway shows, concerts and symphony performances, and is also home to the annual Miss Ohio Pageant. Our historic Ohio State Reformatory, where parts of the movie Shawshank Redemption and Air Force One were filmed, provides a venue for ghost hunts and ghost walks. Biblewalk, Ohio’s only life-sized wax museum, the Little Buckeye Children’s Museum, the Mansfield Fire Museum, the Mansfield Memorial Museum and the Mansfield Playhouse are just a few more of our attractions that draw many people to our great city.
