It was not what I was expecting it was better. It had a copious amounts of classic cars, cool signs, toys, and cut outs. It's is worth the time to find this gem.

Forget your Austin-Martens, your Dusenbergs, your loaded Ferraris. This is a car museum for the driver, for the family who hit the highways and byways and small town trappings that lured them in along the way. There's a Model T, a classic Mustang, Packards, Pierces and Studebakers and several Ohio-produced cars, and lots of local memorabilia like restaurants hanging menus... More

I grew up in Canton and never visited the Classic Car Museum but after returning 30 years later I wish I would have visited it a long long time ago. It should be called the Canton Car Hall of Fame!

My husband and I took my parents to see the museum. Even though I grew up not more than 15 minutes from here, this was our first time visiting. We were all very impressed, esp my husband and my dad! They really enjoyed it! My husband actually read every placard, which never ever ever happens in a museum. I couldn't... More

The canton car museum has a several nice collectible cars but I was most impressed with the amount of local memorabilia. The museum is nicely laid out and packed with signs, models, advertisements and such from local business related to the automotive industry. There is a section of the museum devoted to the Lincoln Highway which goes through Canton, Ohio.

This museum has more than cars, they have many antiques too. There are things everywhere to look at. For kids, they have clipboards they can use and do a scavenger hunt. This was fun and kept the kids from getting bored. Also, the people working there were really friendly and informative.

The cars are amazing, but the memorabilia and staff make the place fun for all. Worth an hour or two after that other Canton museum.

It was so much more than an auto museum - lots of historical memorabilia. We were lucky enough to join a tour given my 'Char'; she told stories about the various pieces and really made the history come alive.

Have lived Canton for 28 years before moving out of state. I came back to visit and decided to check out some sights which included the Canton Classic Car Museum. The museum is packed with all kinds of memorabilia and our course cars. At the conclusion of our self guided tour we were greeted by the Museum Director. She has... More
