It is great to visit when they have special exhibits. My Girl Scout Troop enjoyed visiting. It is a very small museum, so I would not go unless they had another exhibit going on.

Enjoyed our visit at the Canton Co History Museum. It's not a big place but it packs a lot of great history of the past. Well worth a visit with a stop afterwards at any of the local downtown restuarants.
