If you like cars and their history, you will love this. A great variety of old cars with good information about them. This would be a excellent place to take the kids so they could see what it was like in the past.

Several great antique cars. My favorite was the powder-blue coupe de ville. Several Packards were on display, as well as an antique fire truck. There are antique toys displayed throughout the museum and even a couple of children's riding toys/cars. We enjoyed taking our time.

Such a gem right in our back yard! A great variety of cars displayed along with interesting historical facts about the cars. There was also a great deal of local memorabilia.. interesting to see how Canton was a booming place due to the Lincoln Way Highways.

This was a free museum donations accepted) that was very interesting and had a lot of really neat cars in it as well as vintage items from baby strollers to TV's. I have toured it twice and would go again.

Management response:

Thanks for the great comments! So glad you enjoyed the museum! The museum does charge an admission fee to enter, but we do have a donation box next to our 1914 Benham. So glad you have been here several times , there's so much to see. Hope you can visit again! Happy Motoring! More

Lots of variety of items along with some very unique cars. So much to take in. Brought back so many memories. Great museum. So glad we went. We spent about two hours but you could easily spend more time. Man who was collecting ticket price was very friendly and informative.

The CCCM is a gem of a museum. It has an interesting variety of cars used for various purposes. There is also an eclectic mix of knickknacks that augment the collection. The staff is friendly, professional, knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. There is ample parking. I feel people with varied interests and any age can find something interesting here....

We took our two sons (13 & 7) to this museum since our younger son has developed an interest in cars. It is so well maintained, and there is something interesting to discover in every inch of the place. Reasonably priced, and would be great for a rainy day!

My wife had my 50th birthday for me here. It was great, they closed the museum so it was private and fun. What a great time

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.
