Manchester Historical Museum is Re-opening

Manchester Historical Museum is now open on a limited basis. We would like to invite you to come view the current art exhibit and sale – “Cape Ann through Artists’ Eyes.” Come enjoy paintings and photography from 18 local artists. This free exhibit will run through September during our regular hours Tuesday – Fridays (10 – 3). As artwork sells, new items will be hung, so come a couple of times during this run. For more info contact the Manchester Historical Museum.

In order to comply with CDC and state guidelines, guests and staff must:

  • wear face coverings while inside,
  • practice social distancing,
  • sanitize hands upon entrance and
  • register for Covid tracing.

We will be limiting the number of people in the exhibit hall which may mean a short wait in our lovely courtyard before entering. Unfortunately due to social distancing requirements, the historic Trask House will remain closed for the time being.

Limited archive research has also resumed but is be by pre-arranged appointments only. Email to set up an appointment.
