 The Ohio Historical Center is in Columbus and is a fun museum to visit its collection is very ecclectic. The only real theme here is Ohio History. The flint collection is really good. Here and the Cleveland Natural History Museum have the largest collections of artifacts from this period I have seen. The Mastadon is neat to see.
