This is the place to delve into the history of Massachusetts' second city.




Around the corner from the Worcester Art Museum is the Worcester Historical Museum, with a library and galleries dedicated to the town's history and lore (map).

Here's where you can learn about Worcester's vivid history as a 19th-century industrial and commercial boom town.

The museum's collections include early woodenware and ceramics, weaponry from the colonial era through World War II, Civil War-era letters and diaries, records and documents of the Blackstone Canal Company, paintings and sculptures, and a significant costume and textile collection.

The museum also owns and operates Salisbury Mansion, Worcester's only historic house museum. Built in 1772, it has been restored to its 1830s appearance, and is one of the best documented historic houses in New England.

Check the museum's website for current exhibitions.
