Museum
““Where Art And History Come Together.” That’s the slogan of the Massillon Museum, and it lives up to the promise. Housed in the renovated Giltz Building since 1996, the museum “collects, preserves and exhibits art and artifacts to enrich our community through education and experience,” according to its mission statement. This is achieved in both ground-floor and second-floor galleries. It also hosts music events, a film series, brown bag lunch talks, discussions by history groups and community parties.”

“Perennial Vineyard's home is part of a 1860's dairy barn. Located in the rolling hills of Ohio's Amish country near Brewster, Perennial Vineyards became a part of Ohio's growing wine industry. Perennial Vineyards grows & produces some of the finest wines in Ohio. We offer a small menu of appetizers and gourmet pizza to accompany your wine. Visit the tasting room, straw bale grotto, patio, and vineyard pavilion.”

“Because it's different! Not like over-the top, make-you-feel-uncomfortable different. No, it's more like... In-a-150-year-old-renovated historic building different. Or, like, comfortable-ambiance-with-nostalgic-quality different. It can be just-two-of-you-or-a-whole-bunch-more different. It's definitely wood-hearth-oven-pizza different.(yum!) And, appetizers-and-entrees-you never-had-before different. (yum, yum!) Martini-cosmopolitan-tequila-get-together kinda different (real different!)”

Movie Theatre
““Entertaining audiences since 1915.” But, it’s not all films. Community stage shows make use of the historical facility built by Massillon grocer John McLain on the Lincoln Highway (hence the name). The theater has survived both the arrival of multiplexes and the move into the digital age, emerging not as a relic but as a vital part of the downtown.”
