The Immel Circus Gallery

Now open!

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.
