The Campaign for Worcester Historical Museum


Dear Friends,

Worcester Historical Museum has been a part of this community for 140 years – collecting, interpreting and sharing the stories and artifacts that tell who we are, where we came from, and where we are headed next. And as central Massachusetts has changed, so have we: new galleries, new technology, new communities who have stories to tell and things to teach us.

To continue our role at the intersection of our history, our culture, our society, and our community, we have work we need to do at the intersection of Elm and Chestnut Streets. And for that, we need your help. The Campaign for Worcester Historical Museum has ambitious goals and to realize them, we need to build our endowment, transform our galleries, improve access to our building and our collections, and attract and retain the storytellers, interpreters, and educators who will keep us vibrant for the next 140 years.

On behalf of the Museum, we ask you to think hard about the value of your history and the history of the city and region around you, and consider how you can help extend our reach and preserve our role well into the next generation. Without your help, that history is at risk.

Please contact the Development Office at 508-753-8278 for more information on how you can join us and help history unfold at Worcester Historical Museum.
