Titanic Museum located in Sidney, Ohio-closed
I know this is a long shot but do you happen to have to exact location (road etc) of where this musseum used to be or anything else related to the mussum and John Witman, I’m trying to gather as much information as possible for documeting some hand drawn titanic blueprints from the mussuem. Would be great if you could email me.
Sorry, I don’t remember. You might want to try the Sydney, OHio Chamber of Commerce, or the Sidney-shelby county tourist bureau. Someone there may remember where it was and be able to help you.
I was a dear friend of John when museum was on Russel Rd in Sidney. I also wrote news articles for Wapak News in Wapakonetta, Ohio in 1987 about his art school and museum and his trip to Europe to see their safe from the Titanic on TV with Yul bryner as host. can’t find jJohn either. anyone knowing his whereabouts please respond. Last I knew he had cancer.You can also write me , Jan Eisert at 1654 w. 21st St. Erie,Pa 16502. Or call 1-814-455-1442.
Actually the Museum was located on Fair Rd. I have lived here in Sidney my entire life, and still live here to this day. The museum was located on the corner of Vandemark and Fair Rd, it would be the house on the left before the road forks.
Actually, the Museum was not on Fair Road. The address was 10741 Russell Road, Sidney. I worked tours in the Museum for many years for John Whitman up until 1992 when I moved to California. A year or two after that, John sold the collection to the late George Tulloch of RMS Titanic, Inc. Sometime after 1995 I lost touch with Whitman.
