If walking around a bunker filled with old fat white dudes masquerading as salesmen, in order to gawk at about 35 old vehicles in no particular order or scheme, and consider purchasing one of them for obscene asking prices, this is the place for you. Museum it is not. Classic neither. It is free, and in the basement of the... More

If you love classic cars this is the place for you. Lots of "stuff" in a small area. Smelled a little musty, but that was ok. Cars in mint condition. Fun side trip.

Besides a really good of collection of cars, automotive items, and other historical pieces of life, this museum had a copy of an hour long DVD about the history of the Lincoln Highway. The day I was there there were not very many people. So, the staff let me sit up close and watch the entire DVD by myself. I... More

This is not your typical car museum. Yes, there were many historic cars on display with detailed information about their specs and history. What made this museum different was all the other items on display with the cars - an assortment of collectibles and memorabilia from different eras. Many items were related to local history, but were still interesting to... More

We visited the museum on a Thursday and it was busier than I expected. Even though it is called the Classic Car Museum they have a lot more to offer than just cars. So, even if you’re not a huge car enthusiast you still might find a visit to be enjoyable. There is a lot of Canton history related memorabilia... More

My son and I were in town for the Football HOF and took this as a side trip. There are lots of run of the mill old cars, a rare 3 wheel BMW Issetta (bubble car) and an Amphicar. There were some partially restored cars and fire truck. There were also lots of old toys and artifacts. A little dusty... More

Don't let looks deceive you. The outside of the building may look small, but it is full of cars, antiques & memorabilia. Jim, the caretaker, is very knowledgeable & friendly. We spent a good two hours browsing around. There is something there for everyone. The cars are great. The old radio collection & the model cars are enjoyable & bring... More

Fun to visit here with friends. Lots of well-maintained cars and curiosities. Amusing place to walk through. Visit their website in case they still have their 15% off coupon up.
