MEMORIAL HALL MUSEUM

  • Work directly with visitors by sharing the many stories preserved throughout the museum.
  • Lend a hand setting up new exhibits and/or helping with special events. Interested in volunteering?

We were driving through Old Deerfield enjoying a beautiful fall day and saw the Museum was open - with free admission no less. So of course we pulled over to visit and three (3!) hours later we walked out having learned so much about the history of this town. Fascinating collection, welcoming staff, and we liked the way they have rephrased some of the displays to put the raid in context of what was happening at the time. Kudos, Museum! Five stars and four thumbs up.

I loved it. So much to see from quilts to dino fossils. So much history pre- sented in an interesting way. The exhibits are lovely. The staff is lovely. The memorial room really captured my imagination. 5 stars
