Massillon Museum galleries are filled with innovative exhibitions—sometimes art, sometimes history. The main gallery features award-winning, often in-house curated shows that change about five times a year. Second-floor galleries usually focus on the permanent collection—MassMu preserves more than 100,000 artifacts from which to draw! While a 1907 Massillon-manufactured Jewel auto is nearly always on display, the photography gallery changes regularly, sometimes featuring contemporary artists, sometimes displaying a themed selection from the Museum's collection of 60,000 images. The Paul Brown football gallery and The Immel Circus—a 100-square-foot hand-carved miniature circus lot surrounded by historic circus posters, photographs, videos, and costumes—are always on exhibit. A visit to the Massillon Museum is always free.
