  • I'm an intern here, so I'm gonna talk about it from a working standpoint. First, the environment is amazing. This place is run by nearly all volunteers. We always do our best to keep politics outside of our regular discussions, we care about each other, but most importantly for you guys, we try to make sure our tours are informative, engaging, and enjoyable for all of our guests, and we always incorporate the exhibits of the museum into our discussions. Second, hours. We're volunteers; we do this on our own time, and we're not necessarily bound by a certain amount of times we have to come in. I try to come in at least twice a month, if not more! Thirdly, the overall experience. I have met some very talented and smart individuals, some of whom I work with, some of whom I give tours to, and it's a great environment in which one can learn. So I am being honest when I say this: Stop by, ask for a tour, and trust me, when you're done, you'll say that you got a sweet deal learning about a bunch of local history for just $7, which is, in my opinion, worth a whole lot more.
  • A small museum with a lot of interesting history. It is not expensive to get in.
  • We attended a Newburyport Chamber Music co cert here. Its a very nice venue for a concert.
  • Fascinating experience, take advantage of the tour guides
  • Small but interesting museum.
