Canton Classic Car Museum Offers More Than Just Cars

The History Channel has a lot of great shows that are fun to watch. They are not just centered around academic types telling stories about old battles. The most popular shows bring the past into the present through things that were made many years ago.

This type of history lesson is inherently part of the classic car experience. It is not all about nuts and bolts, though many of us are extremely interested in the things that are going on under the hood. There is a great deal of broader history contained within the history of the motor vehicle, and this is part of the appeal to classic car lovers.

When you visit an automotive museum, you get to see some amazing one-of-a-kind vehicles, but you also see a historical chronology come to life before your eyes. This kind of experience is the intention behind the Canton Classic Car Museum.

They like to say that “we're not just cars” over at the Canton Classic Car Museum, because they also have tons of Ohio-related memorabilia. The Museum houses an impressive collection of old-school advertising signs, boxes, premiums, and the like.

That's not all. There are countless antique curiosities, automotive toys, and a healthy dose of political memorabilia. William McKinley, our 25th president, was from the Canton area, and he is well represented.

There are 40 amazing classic cars on display at the Canton Classic Car Museum. They include a 1911 Ford Model T, an original 1937 Ahrens-Fox Quad firetruck, a 1937 bulletproof police car that was built by Studebaker, a 1937 Packard hearse, and a very sweet 1966 Mustang.

Perhaps the most unique vehicle on display at the Canton Classic Car Museum is a 1962 Amphicar. This is the German-built two-door cabriolet that was also a boat... yes, you read that right, a boat. If you have never seen such a rare amphibious beast, now is your chance.

The Canton Classic Car Museum is open every day of the week from 10 o'clock in the morning until 5 p.m. Admission is very inexpensive at just $7.50 for adults and $5 for students.

If you need another reason to visit Canton, Ohio, here you go: it's the home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. How can you beat that for a winning perfecta? Make a reservation, have a blast, and enjoy a huge slice of America history.
