Green Line

New England is rich in many things, prevalent among them are history and culture. There are museums throughout the region that chronicle the past in a wide range of contexts: history, culture, art, science, the sea, technology and culinary, among others. They are packed with all manner of fascinating artifacts, books, articles, furniture and the keepsakes of Native Americans, presidents, farmers, manufacturers and the sea faring, to name but a few.

If we did a story on all of them, it would be a wee bit too deep for a vacationer interested in blending a museum trip or two in with white water rafting, camping, hiking and skiing. To help narrow the list, we've chosen two museums or historical sites from each of the Southern New England states for your consideration. Each is primarily historical in nature and each offers a wealth of information about their core topics. Not only that, but they offer specific educational programs that engage, stimulate and inform. In subsequent articles, we'll cover other types of museums, such as those collecting art and technology throughout New England.

The museums in this article may not be the biggest and best-known in existence, but we feel that they are worthy of a visit because they creatively present our history in ways that will interest everybody in the family.
