Urban Archeology

During the excavation of the property that will house our new building, workers have unearthed many small treasures.  Most of these items date to the 1930s, which corresponds to the construction of the Massillon Museum’s current building, the Gensemer Brothers’ Dry Goods Store in 1931.  These items were likely discarded as trash or were used to fill in the 1931 construction pit.

The Immel Circus Gallery

*This gallery is now closed for renovations through September 2018. Stay tuned for updates.

The Immel Circus is one of the most interesting “pieces” in the collection of the Massillon Museum. The 100-square foot miniature hand-carved circus contains 2,620 pieces. Surrounding the Immel Circus are rotating displays of a selection of circus-related artifacts from Dr. Robert Immel's collection.

The Immel Circus collection contains more than 1,400 artifacts of circus-related memorabilia. This collection includes 115 photographs of circus sideshow acts, 559 circus letterheads, 128 books, 256 circus programs, 357 miscellaneous circus photographs, and various costumes, figurines, and posters.
