We are always on the look out for another museum in Ohio. Our latest find is the Massillon Museum. The museum has a long history. It is like many others and learning the history is just as fun as visiting the museum.
The Massillon Museum is open most weekdays and weekends. This museum is multi floored and full of exhibits. There are permanent exhibits, rotating exhibits, and some good temporary exhibits throughout the year. One we fondly remember is their famous Immel Circus Gallery. This gallery features a 100 foot hand carved miniature circus. This is a very impressive exhibit to look at and worth the trip all by itself.
The second floor contained more of the artifacts and artwork. We saw some real great artifacts from the permanent collection when we visited. It was nice to look at older items and discover real historic treasures. Their seemed to be something around every corner. This is not the biggest museum in Ohio, but this does not limit the museum. The collection is on a nice rotation, so repeat visits do mean seeing something new. It takes an hour or more to see the whole museum. When we went it was free, so it was way more than worth the price to stop in while we were in the area.
The Massillon Museum also has a café and gift shop. The gift shop has lots of great history and local items for sale.
This museum is not one to miss. You can easily fit this museum into any trip.
