What’s new at Mu? Benefits of the Blue Star Museum for Active Military
The Massillon Museum is part of the national Blue Star Museum program – a partnership between the National Endowment for the Arts and Blue Star Families, in conjunction with the Department of Defense and museums across America.
Blue Star Program Highlights
While most Blue Star museums offer free admission to active military between Armed Forces Day and Labor Day each year, admission to the Massillon Museum is always free. Instead, MassMu extends discounts throughout the year on classes, workshops, special events, and in-store purchases. Upcoming classes include clay earrings, drawing, family clay, yoga, oral history, sgraffito salt and pepper shakers, Tots N’ Pots, and more.
The MassMu program is available to those currently serving in the United States military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, as well as members of the Reserves, National Guard, US Public Health Commissioned Corps and NOAA Commissioned Corps). Up to five family members can benefit from reductions. For a list of all participating museums, visit arts.gov/bluestarmuseums.
The Massillon Museum receives operational support from the Ohio Arts Council and ArtsinStark. MassMu’s participation in the Blue Star Museum is one of many programs supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
