Heritage Museums & Gardens

These former Plantations are a complex of museums devoted to early American life. The art museum contains antique toys and the largest collection of Currier and Ives lithographs in the country. A 1912 carousel is a favorite with children. A replica of a Shaker roundhouse contains antique cars. Antique firearms and uniforms are on display in the Military Museum. Charles Dexter, the original owner, spent years here planting and perfecting varieties of rhododendrons. Please note the museum and gardens are open seasonally.

Taylor-Bray Farm

Nestled amidst vast open fields, away from the busy city, Taylor-Bray Farm is a fine place to relax and unwind. A place for learning and recreation, at the farm one can gain some vital information on the city's agricultural industry, as well as revel amidst the sprawling lawns. Through educational programs for kids and adults alike, the farm imparts basic understanding on the process of growing and maintaining several kinds of vegetables, fruits and even animals. At the petting zoo, one can feed and interact with a number of farm animals.

Stage Stop Candy

Owner Ray Hebert could have become part of his family's Massachusetts candy-making business, but he wanted to keep his craft on a smaller scale. So, he opened Stage Stop Candy, where all of the candy is made on the premises, and he invented the cranberry cordial (which is like a cherry cordial except with cranberries). It became a local hit, along with seven flavors of truffles, peanut brittle, molded chocolate and other rich treats. Stop in for just a piece or order an entire gift basket.

Woods Hole Science Aquarium

Focused solely on local waters, this small but impressive aquarium has been delighting visitors since 1871. Kids especially love the "touch tank," where they can reach into tide pools filled with starfish and sea cucumbers. Other displays include sea turtles, lobster and wolffish. A special exhibit shows the effect of plastic trash on marine life. Two harbor seals have taken up residence in an outdoor pool and are a star attraction. The aquarium is operated by the Northeast Fisheries Science Center.
