Lobby Exhibit

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.

Lower Level Exhibit

Collection Highlight: Massillon Glass

May 15 - June 5, 2018

While the Massillon Museum’s renovation has disrupted galleries and public spaces, staff and volunteers have been busy behind the scenes rehousing collections of accessories, china, ceramics, and glass. They have unpacked hundreds of pieces of glass—photographing, inventorying, and properly storing them. To showcase that work and the treasures they’re protecting and to provide displays for visitors while regular galleries are closed, cases have been installed in the lower level lobby. Their contents will change every three weeks.

Both utilitarian and art glass were produced in Massillon. One case contains bottles for milk, alcoholic beverages, and carbonated soda. The other case features art glass “whimsies” made with leftover melted glass at the end of each work day—turtles, chains, gazing globes, canes, lilies, and paper weights.
