Who doesn't like Jack?

I must admit, I totally geeked out looking at all the photos, memorabilia, his golf clubs from Ryder Cups, trophies. Really, a cool experience

The museum gives a nice, informative look into the life of an iconic golfer. Enjoyed learning about the earlier years and getting a glimpse in to the man and his family.

Wonderful exhibit to the best player of all time. The pictures follow young Upper Arlington-Ohio State days and are special to all central ohio golfers our age.

An amazing documentation of Jack's golf career including an extensive collection of his photos, portraits, trophies, equipment, and artifacts from various tournaments. Really enjoyed the special touch they did on his parents, his siblings, and his life at home with his wife Barbara and their children. Each major tournament has its own section. A beautiful building on the Ohio State... More

Located at The Ohio State University this covers Jack from childhood til now. Lots of golf memorabilia. Not much on the science of the game. Some on the science of the turf. I enjoyed the first half but the latter half was a blur of similar items.

This museum of the world's most famous golfer is a "must see" for any golf enthusiast. The history of the game of golf and Mr. Nicklaus's life are informative and cherished treasures within the Jack Nicklaus Museum. The collection is truly amazing and there is just so much to see. I would allocate about 2 hours to really take in... More

How many golfers have their own museum? Not many, I'd bet. When you are someone like Jack Nicklaus, you've accumulated a lot of stuff over the years. It comes with the territory of golf's greatest golfer. You've got trophies from 18 major championships, other title trophies, awards, etc. It's tough to find space for it all in the house, and...

While this museum is small, it is crammed with memorabilia. It's obvious that Barbara took the care to save every little item from Jack's career and it was great to see everything from his trophies to the tees he used as a child. While this museum is obviously not large, it does keep you busy for a good 20-30 minutes... More

Much larger than expected. Over 2000 items of memorabilia on display. Would recommend to others. Hard to believe it opened in 2002 and we have never been there.
