Events & Programs
FREE workshops for all ages! Do the Mu is the first Saturday of every month. Join us for a different art or history museum workshop taught by local artists or Museum staff. Try something new!
Bring a sack lunch or purchase from Greatness Cafe. The program will begin promptly at 12:10 p.m. and conclude at about 12:50 p.m. to accommodate guests who attend during the lunch hour.
The history group meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 10:00 a.m. until Noon to chat casually about a pre-announced topic, usually a narrow segment of Massillon history. Chris Craft moderates the discussion.
The NEA Big Read is a community reading program focused on a single book. Massillon Museum and its amazing community partners create innovative and critical museum programs highlighting the book themes, exposing participants to new genres and ideas. The selected book is offered to the community for free so many can participate. Since 2008, Massillon Museum has proudly distributed more than 32,000 books to Massillon and its surrounding communities.
The Massillon Museum is the Ohio Arts Council’s Northeast Ohio regional partner for Poetry Out Loud. A partnership of the National Endowment for the Arts, Poetry Foundation, and the state and jurisdictional arts agencies, Poetry Out Loud is a national arts education museum program that encourages the study of great poetry by offering free educational materials and a dynamic recitation competition to high schools across the country.
All are welcome to attend this free, family-friendly and accessible event as our way of extending thanks to the community for supporting its Museum. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and invite your friends.
Fun Fest is a FREE, annual event held as a part of Massillon's Summer Celebration!
