Celebrating 95 years in 2018 of local museum excellence in a convenient location.
The accredited Wenham Museum, a designation given only to 6% of museums nationwide is a donor and visitor-supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution founded in 1922. The Museum’s mission is to protect, preserve, and interpret the artifacts of childhood, domestic life, and the history and culture of Boston’s North Shore. Wenham Museum was named by readers of Wicked Local Online as the Best Museum and the Best Local Gift Shop.
It is a family-friendly museum of childhood and heritage. Visit the Museum to see renowned model train galleries, an interactive family room, extensive costume and textile collections, antique toys, historical photographs, and special exhibits. The historic Claflin-Gerrish-Richards House c. 1660, located on the Museum’s grounds, offers tours upon request. Wenham Museum is conveniently located 29 miles north of Boston.
