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. This museum 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 different 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.
The second floor contained some 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 some real historic treasures. Their seemed to be something around each corner to look at. 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 not mean seeing the same thing each time. 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.
