One of our favorite things to do on a road trip is to visit off-beat, quirky museums. The Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum in the beautiful Hocking Hills of Ohio is said to be the largest collection of pencil sharpeners in the world! Sporting over 3400 pencil sharpeners, the museum offers a nostalgic look at getting to the point.
Paul Johnson’s amazing collection and the shed in which he housed it, was donated to the Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center in 2010. Many visitors to the museum stay on the lookout for unique pencil sharpeners which they purchase and donate to the museum.
The Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum is open to the public Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the museum is free (or we luckily timed our visit when someone was on break:) The Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center is located at 13178 State Route 664 South, Logan, Ohio, 43138
