The Williamstown Historical Museum is a research center dedicated to explaining the history of the most northwestern township of Massachusetts.
Founded in 1941 as the House of Local History, it works to preserve and to promote knowledge of the town’s past. Over the years its exhibits have grown into a museum with a substantial archive of photos, objects and documents that relate to the evolution of our town. Our collection includes items from the 1700s to the present day, as well as published works related to the town’s history.
December through March, the museum is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and by appointment or chance.
April through November the museum is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
