Established in 1897, the Lynn Museum & Historical Society is the only organization in the city devoted to collecting, preserving, and fostering an appreciation of Lynn's rich history. Did you know that Lynn is the home of Marshmallow Fluff, or that a sea serpent was once sighted in Lynn Harbor?
A membership organization open to the public, LMHS fulfills its mission by offering youth and adult programs, maintaining a research library and archives, and mounting several changing exhibitions each year.
The museum offers periodic family programs. Check the website for current information.
