You will learn a lot about the history of automobiles and the industry itself.

This is one of the better auto museums I've been to. It is near downtown Canton housed in an old building but there is plenty of parking. I have to say I learned a lot about the... read more

This is one of the better auto museums I've been to. It is near downtown Canton housed in an old building but there is plenty of parking. I have to say I learned a lot about the early days of the automotive industry. You are likely to meet Char at some point during your visit. She is the museum director... More

This museum far exceeded my expectations, it's a lot more than just cars. It's sort of hard to describe with all that's there. For the price and location, it's definitely worth a visit. It reminded me of House on the Rock in Wisconsin, albeit smaller and not quite as wacky.

This museum was very nice with plenty of old cars and there was a wealth of knowledge to be gained. All vehicles were in amazing condition.

You will not believe the expanse of this museum. We had a fantastic guide and I hope you would, too. This is THE history of Canton and more. I think all locals and all visitors owe it to themselves to do this museum at least once. There is so much to learn about Canton, about an era. It will take... More

Remember when Grandpa talked about his first car? Or maybe Dad has recalled his favorite sports car over dinner. They are all there! If you are from Canton or a visitor with time on your hands, treat yourself or your family to a self-guided tour of one of the best classic car museums anywhere. You'll really appreciate your time at... More

This was our second visit to this museum. They have so many things to see besides classic cars. The cars are the primary focus, but they also have toys, posters, signs, clothes...you name it, they have it. It is a small museum, but worth a stop when in the Canton area.

If you are looking for something different to do in Canton and have 20 bucks for a group of 4 this is a must see. Really great collection of cars and various collectibles from gas stations, peddle cars, toys and the sort. It is not big and 2 hours is plenty of time to wander through. Was definitely interesting if... More

Canton Classic Car Museum is a hidden gem in the area. While it was designed as a car museum, they also have many other things on display and it is all interesting whether you are "into" old cars and antiques or not - there is a lot of history on display here. It's a great activity for families and a... More
