This museum is a true cornucopia of New England history. Housing some of the most influential documents of colonial Massachusetts and revolutionary America, the Commonwealth Museum is home to a rich collection of archives and artifacts that will illuminate the treasures of the past in vivid imagery for your family to explore. The current featured exhibition “Tracing Our Roots” explores the multicultural intersections of America between the 1620s and today in an exciting portrait of four Massachusetts families of Native American, English, African-American, and Irish descent navigating the shifting landscape of colonial times.
