2019 Class Schedule


The Massillon Museum first became a Blue Star Museum in 2014.  We are proud to offer a 10% discount on classes, event tickets, and Museum shop purchases year-round to the nation's active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families.

We’ll extend our member benefits to those with EBT or SNAP cards for just half the price of our membership rates, so you and your family can enjoy all the magic and wonder here.  If you have an EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) or SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) card, simply present it when you arrive to receive our specially-priced membership rate.

Through Museums for All, Massillon Museum is partnering with museums across the country to make sure everyone can experience the best museums have to offer, all for the lowest most-affordable prices ever. To find other participating museums, visit
