Take A Tour

To tour the Museum is to take an illuminating stroll through the centuries. Our collections chronicle lives lived, wars waged, fortunes won and ingenuity rewarded. Walk among our exhibits and you will discover history for the ages in close proximity with the history of the everyday. The “getting of history” is a dynamic pursuit. With that charge firmly in mind, the collection of the OCHM is constantly evolving.

Come see what’s new with a tour of the Museum.

After you’ve toured the Museum, why not explore the area even further? The one-mile Liberty & Union Walking Tour is a loop through Historic Downtown and gives an overview of the original buildings, places, and people who lived and worked Downtown.

Join us for guided walking tours the third Saturday of the month, May through October, at 11 a.m., and take the Downtown Tour with one of our exceptional guides!  Give us a call at 508.822.1622 to learn more. This tour lasts approximately one hour, and starts and finishes at the Museum, 66 Church Green.

Be sure to look for our QR codes throughout the Downtown! Just scan the code and learn even more historic tidbits as you shop and dine Downtown!
