Can’t come to the Museum? Let the Museum come to you! The Museum offers a wide variety of outreach options, based on your needs.
Museum staff can provide a lecture or talk for your group. Select from our wide range of Speaker’s Bureau topics, tailored to your audiences’ age and timeframe. We have taken our talks to many local schools, colleges, YMCAs, the Stark County Genealogical Society, the Massillon Women’s Club, libraries, churches, and other social groups.

The Educator can develop a custom made outreach program based on your curriculum needs and resources available at the Museum. Outreach is free, unless costs must be incurred for additional supplies. Donations are always appreciated.
