I finally made it to the Massillon Museum yesterday! Because the slideshow gods aren’t with me today, I’m going to divide this into two different posts. This first post will be about the museum except for Immel’s Circus and the second post will be on Immel’s Circus alone.
Following are quite a few pictures from the current exhibit on the first floor. I loved looking at all of the old dresses and was surprised to find that a few of them were actually new! See if you can guess which ones are ‘modern’ and which ones aren’t. (Hint: the information sheets provided are included for some of the dresses and all of the new ones so that you can tell for sure.)
Next I went upstairs to the second floor.
I really liked the Massillon Tigers exhibit, although, I wasn’t very good at the photo opportunity and I certainly don’t match up to a football player.
Here’s a little slideshow of the room that the circus is housed in…
Next I went down to the lower level where I met Harvey and Oscar.
There were footprints to show me the way!
Here’s Harvey and his regiment.
I loved this next picture. The caption says that it’s a reunion of all the soldiers with a painting that they had commissioned of Harvey so that he would always be with them when they assembled as a group.
This is Oscar. (I don’t think he’s a grouch!)
So, stay tuned for my next post from the Massillon Museum featuring Immel’s Circus!
