This museum in Canton was very strange and very interesting.
There was an exhibit on McKinley, with a lot of artifacts — and talking statues of William and Ida.
McKinley’s house in Canton which has been torn down.
This was all well and good. But there was also an exhibit on dinosaurs.
And one with live animals, like parakeets.
And a hands-on science area with a tornado.
An exhibit on fashion.
A model train exhibit.
And a room with all sorts of odd stuff, like a giant paper mache lady created for a carnival ride.
And a chair we could sit in and be lifted up by a vacuum cleaner — or so we were told.
My favorite part was a row of storefronts. I’ve long thought it would be fun to buy on old barn or warehouse and build a town like this inside with each store being a different room of the house.
In the fire station, there was a pole I could slide down.
It was very eclectic and odd, but well done and fun.
