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.

The display is quite impressive. They have such a variety of artwork on display. Not to mention that Cherokee County is so full of history that tends to get overlooked.

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.

A fun location. It's in the cute historic part of downtown Canton. You can watch a 20 min video about the area and the takeover of the land from the native Americans. They have displays, maps and other interesting things to go through. The coolest...More

At time of visit, facility torn apart to repair water leaks and extensive damage in the museum part of this very old building. Features are very specific, local, and unless you have an interest in Cherokee County not a very interesting.
