#StarkTuscMuseumsUnite Digital Partnership


In 2020 and 2021, MassMu partnered with museums throughout Stark County and Tuscarawas County to offer free educational programming on our social media pages at noon each Monday through Saturday. Each institution provided a virtual program that varied from week to week on a prearranged schedule. Follow the McKinley Museum & Presidential Library, Massillon Museum, the Canton Museum of Art, the National First Ladies' Library, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum on our social media platforms to access this engaging and informative content!
