“Small city class!”
Review of Massillon Museum

Massillon Museum
Ranked #1 of 14 things to do in Massillon
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 August 2016

For a city the size of Massillon, the Massillon Museum is a true treasure, and it's free! Interesting art displays are changed often. Many displays attract a wide audience. Dr. Immel's circus is a MUST see. Oscar, in the basement, is a true Tigertown tradition. For those who grew up in Massillon, who can forget opening up Oscar's closet!! The museum has a collection of artifacts numbering well over 100,000. The museum building will be expanding soon--great news. Try the cafe--great food.

Delightful and cozy museum in the center of Massillon. Excellent venue with art work, photos, and lots of unique local history exhibits. Every exhibit is well curated by the museum staff. Great coffee shop in the lobby, good place to hang out before or after browsing the exhibits. Best part yet - no admission fee, but make sure you drop some cash in the donation bucket.

Stopped here with friends and they had the Masters of American Photography Gallery on Saturday which featured one of my personal favorites in Ansel Adams. I recommend this place if you stop in Massillon.

If you grew up in Massillon, great place to see history of our town. Who can't stop in an visit Oscar, remember how they dressed him up for the holidays.

I have seen such amazing exhibits here, particularly photographic ones like the current "Masters in American Photography" show. They do an outstanding job bringing them in/putting them together, and often have other smaller exhibits which complement the main show. It's a great source of local history if you like that and they often show local artists. They have a lot of different activities all the time -- they really do an amazing job overall. It's welcoming, well kept-up, has food/drinks and a small gift shop. And it's free. :)
