As the only membership supported, community-based cultural institution of its kind in Somerville, the Somerville Museum is the City's mirror, playing a central role in preserving the past, reflecting the present, and helping to shape the future of this diverse urban community of 76,000. Through its innovative programming, the Museum seeks to engage audiences in an on-going dialogue with local artists, scholars, and educators with the larger aim of fostering cultural education and understanding.
The Somerville Museum presents exhibitions featuring local visual arts, history and culture in the context of neighborhoods and community, as well as musical and dramatic performance series; develops hands-on history learning projects in collaboration with the Somerville Public School Department; and is available as a meeting place for local historical and cultural organizations.
