The Wenham Museum is one of those rare finds that accomplishes the feat of appealing to both children and adults. Located in the historic village of Wenham, the museum takes visitors back in time and offers a glimpse of how New England families lived, worked, dressed and played in the past. This place is tailor-made for the history buff and antique collector, but there’s truly something for everyone at the Wenham Museum. Guided tours of the 17th century Claflin-Richards house makes for a fascinating architecture and history lesson. Fashion buffs young and old will love the museum’s collection of antique clothing, accessories, home textiles and furnishings. The model train room is a dream with fantastically detailed, historic reproduction landscape layouts. It’s a hive of activity, with working trains chugging along various gauge tracks, and young children playing conductor. The museum also boasts what could be the finest collection of William Britain lead soldiers in the world. Finally even though the Wenham Museum is, at heart, a history museum, it definitely isn’t stuffy; the Family Discovery Gallery offers plenty of hands-on fun for the littlest visitors: musical instruments, blocks, a playhouse and toy trains, as well as hands-on activities based on the museum’s collections. Speaking of activities, the museum hosts regular events for preschoolers, youth, family and adults, as well as special events that everyone can look forward to. With so much to see and do, the Wenham Museum is truly a family-friendly museum and a great way to spend the day.
