The Massillon Museum collects, preserves and exhibits art and artifacts to enrich our community through education and experience.
The Massillon Museum, a local art and history museum, has major collections of photography; costumes and textiles; china, glass and pottery; domestic appliances; and circus memorabilia. The Museum was first accredited in 1972 by the American Association of Museums and has continued to be accredited by the AAM since that time. As of 2008, our permanent collection contains over 100,000 items, mostly gifts from the community.
