Wenham Museum is proud to be part of the Free Fun Fridays Program created by the Highland Street Foundation to further the goal of increasing access to culture, the arts, an education for people of all ages.
Come to the museum on Friday, July 1, 2016 and enjoy the museum's galleries featuring Wheels: Getting from Here to There, antique toys, dolls, dollhouses, 10 operating model train layouts, historic photographs and textiles. Tours of the museum's 17th-century Claflin-Gerrish-Richard's House will also be available at designated times. Experience the history of childhood with old-fashioned games on the lawn.
Wenham Museum welcomes the community for its Fiesta on Main Street!
This event will bring the community together for a fun, entertaining, and affordable night out that raises much-needed revenue for the museum’s exhibits, programs, activities, and collections. With 70% of the museum’s budget funded through donors and fundraising events, your support is needed now more than ever!
Over April School Vacation Week, join the Wenham Museum for a series of programs geared to children, parents, and adults. Offerings include art-making activities, a program inspired by the classic picture book, Miss Rumphius, a book signing, a trunk show, and an appearance by John Adams himself.
