Worcester Historical Museum
The Worcester Historical Museum was founded in 1875 as the Worcester Society of Antiquity. Today, the museum offers exhibitions and programs about the history of the city and region as well as a research library of over 7000 titles and half a million photographs. The centerpiece of the museum is its permanent exhibit which features the city's industrial and labor history. Guests and residents will also enjoy the museum's rotating special exhibits which seek to integrate the history of Worcester and its people within the larger story of America. The museum also operates Salisbury Mansion, a historic home built in 1772.
