Founded in 1875, Worcester Historical Museum has the unique responsibility of collecting and sharing the stories, artifacts and documents of Worcester’s history. At its headquarters at 30 Elm Street, the Museum offers an annual calendar of exhibits, lectures, demonstrations, and tours for audiences of all ages and interests. The Museum’s research library collection includes thousands of images of the city and its people, family and corporate archives, and a wide range of printed source material available to researchers, scholars, students and the casual observer. Museum collections are increasingly accessible at DigitalWorcester.com.
Worcester Historical Museum also owns and operates Salisbury Mansion at 40 Highland Street, where visitors are introduced to the evolution of Worcester from an agrarian community to an industrial center with the influence and investment of families like the Salisburys.
Visit the Museum at 30 Elm Street to see more Revolutionary history like Gardiner Chandler’s cupboard from his Main Street mansion or the rooster from atop the meeting house steeple, or spend time in the research library reading more about Worcester during the Revolution.
