ancient  honorable artillery museum photoThe Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts is the oldest chartered military organization in the western hemisphere. On display in the Museum are military artifacts, weaponry, uniforms, medals, and gifts to the company.

Items span all conflicts from the Revolution to the battlefields of Desert Storm. A special display houses items from the Honorable Artillery Company of London.

You will also notice as you tour items from the Swiss Guard. Special collections present the personal stories and materials for scholarship and research.

Display cases showcase the uniform and Congressional Medal of Honor of Major George Maynard one of many recipients who have been a part of the AHAC.

Also on display is an exhibit of President John F. Kennedy with the company roster opened to show his signature and a photograph of the president elect being interviewed by CBS.

At the far end of the Armory are a very special set of stairs… the Stairway of the Constitution on which there are 13 risers with brass plaques and flags from the original signatory states.

We hope to inspire generations of the lessons learned of those who showed the utmost in optimism, courage and sacrifice in the building of this nation. No tour of Boston is complete without a visit to the AHAC!

The Museum is open Monday through Friday 9AM to 3:30PM.
