Martha's Vineyard Museum & Historical Society

The Martha's Vineyard Museum and Historical Society is devoted to the history and culture of this small Massachusetts island. Explore the island's fascinating past and learn about the people who lived here. The historical society first came together in 1922. Today, the museum and society are housed in historical buildings that are wonderful to walk through. Visitors to this museum can trace back their ancestry through the Historical Society's extensive genealogical services. There are special exhibits, classes, seminars, workshops, and movies hosted here throughout the year.

Pilgrim Hall Museum

The Plymouth colony, which lasted from 1620-1692, is firmly embedded in the collective imagination as one of the major chapters in the historic story of the United States. This museum reveals some of the earliest pages in that story, through artifacts both famous (William Bradford's Bible) and humble (household artifacts). It also acknowledges the other and often overlooked, characters in the story: the native Americans who had settled these shores many centuries before Europeans came sailing in on the Mayflower. A gift shop carries reproductions of many of the museum's artifacts.

Plimoth Plantation

This living museum recreates Plymouth as it was in 1627, and does a great job at separating fact from the enduring (and completely inaccurate) legend of the First Thanksgiving. Historians and curators have paid great attention to detail, from the street plans to furniture, tools, and cooking equipment. Specially bred 17th-century livestock occupies the barns and pastures, and trained reenactors and artisans demonstrate how life was lived among the Pilgrims. In addition to information on the European colonists, visitors can find information on the Native American population at Hobbamock's Homesite. Hobbamock, a Wampanoag Indian, lived with his family in Plymouth from 1621-1641, as part of a peace treaty agreement. The plantation is open seasonally.

Jenney Museum

Jenney Museum is set in a 1749 house and is a wonderful spot to get a glimpse of the city's Pilgrim history and its advancement. It features two rooms and a gift shop. You will find pictures, maps and archived documents that are really delightful and educational. They also do tours in the area. Jenney Museum is run by Leo Martin and his wife.

Sandwich Glass Museum

The Sandwich Glass Museum makes an interesting addition to one's travel itinerary. This museums houses a collection of unique glass ware and exhibits depicting the development of this art and industry. For more information on tours as well the museum itself, call ahead or visit their website.

The Edward Gorey House

Edward Gorey House is a memoir and a preservation of the works of, as the name suggests, the artist and writer Edward Gorey. The house belongs to the man himself and this is where he lived as well. On display at the house are sketches, unpublished works, paintings, ink drawings and much more; all of them works of Gorey. There are also original scripts of his famous works. A lot of the items are part of private collections and a number of them are singular pieces not available anywhere else. The house does focus on Gorey, but also showcases the works of Hillaire Belloc, Edward Lear, T.S. Eliot and others. The house is also involved with a number of animal activation events because of Gorey’s interest and love for animals. They are listed on the website, so do have a look. There is also a gift shop hat has the artists characters come to life as figurines, apparel, posters, jewelery and other goodies.
