The Commonwealth Museum

 

The Commonwealth Museum uses state of the art technology to trace the development of rights in Massachusetts from the 1600s until today. Climate controlled cases display the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights, “John Adams” Massachusetts Constitution of 1780, and unique royal charters. The copper plate used by Paul Revere to engrave his image of the Boston Massacre is a featured piece.

Interactive exhibits, personal stories, and a high tech theater bring history alive. Cambridge Seven Associates, designers of the New England Patriots museum and Boston’s Liberty Hotel, created the exhibit. Emmy award winners Chedd-Angier-Lewis produced audio-visual components.

As the Commonwealth Museum continues to develop the state history museum, new programs, special events, and future plans will continue to evolve. Whether you are a Massachusetts teacher, student, or dedicated “history buff,” the Commonwealth Museum is an exciting place to visit and share our common story.
