All of the artifacts in the Gallery and OMM Room, as well as the rest of the museum, are generously gifted to us from family members and collectors. We thank each one of you because without your kindness, we would not have the amazing collection that we boast today.
At the museum we have the ability to bring the lives of the pilots of our planes to life for the people who visit. Below we are working on a breakdown of each one of the displays from the Gallery of Heroes. These are the people who flew the planes that so many visitors have enjoyed seeing. When you look in the Gallery of Heroes, you are connecting with those who fought through to the end as well those who didn’t make it home.
The Ohio Military Museum’s collection provides us the opportunity to tell stories of local heroes that date prior to the civil war. This amazing collection focuses on the amazing number of heroes that came from City of Massillon and its neighboring communities. We plan to open this part of the museum by mid 2017.
