  • The Massillon Museum, where art and history come together, is a center for cultural excitement in Northeastern Ohio. Main gallery exhibitions rotate six times a year. Visitors can always see permanent collections galleries, a photography gallery, The Immel Circus, the football gallery, a Civil War display (through 2015), and regional artwork in Studio M—all change regularly. In the lobby, guests find a unique shop, an operating vintage photobooth, and Anderson’s in the City (the café). A visit to the Massillon is always free.

    The Museum’s collection and exhibition program reflect the varied interests of a broad constituency. The mission is to offer a rich mix of history and visual arts to people of all backgrounds and age groups.
