The Wenham Museum is a family-friendly museum of childhood and New England family life located on Boston’s North Shore since 1922. The museum’s collections include model trains, a world-renowned doll collection, vintage dollhouses, a costume and textile collection, antique toys, historic photographs and the National Historic Register Claflin-Richards House. Sixteen annual rotating exhibits and related family programming help to interpret the museum's mission to protect, preserve and interpret the artifacts of childhood, domestic life, and the history and culture of Boston’s North Shore. Throughout the year the museum offers changing exhibits and family-friendly programming that celebrate childhood, connect generations and honors local heritage.
Wenham Museum was among the first museums to be accredited by American Association of Museums in 1972 and remains one of only five percent of American museums to be so honored. AAM recognizes the highest professional standards in curatorial, educational, and administrative operations.
