Guided Tours

Museum staff and volunteers can provide a general tour of the Museum or focus on specific curriculum requirements or topics of interest for your group. Guided tours are offered throughout the week, during normal hours of operation: Tuesdays – Fridays, 9:30 – 5:00pm. Additional times may be available after hours, on Mondays, or weekends, by special arrangement.

Please allow at least 4 weeks before the date of your proposed tour, and be sure to check our Current Exhibit Schedule and Upcoming Exhibit Schedule to see what will be on display when you’d like to visit. To schedule a tour, contact Education and Outreach Coordinator April Olsen by phone 330-833-4061 x 104 or by email.

Self-guided Tours

If you would like to bring your class or group in for a self guided Museum visit, please be sure to call us in advance to make sure the galleries are not closed for installation and there are no special events. Please check in at the front desk to let us know how many are in your group, and review the tour guidelines.

Art+History Projects

An exhibition related hands-on activity can be arranged through the Education Department to enhance your tour and visit to the Massillon Museum. Sharpie tie dye, Photobooth pictures, clay Cryptozoology tracks, and Mexican Dia de Los Muertos sugar skulls are just a few of our most popular art projects! We can tailor an art project to meet your curriculum needs, using themes of art, science, history or literature.

The cost for this is $5 per student. The Massillon Museum provides the instructor and supplies for these activities. Payment may be made in cash, check or credit card.
For questions, contact Education and Outreach Coordinator April Olsen by phone 330-833-4061 x 104 or by email.
