Since 1880, Memorial Hall Museum has preserved and exhibited a diverse collection of the region’s art, history, and culture. The collection includes fine and decorative arts, Native arts and artifacts, textiles, military items, photography, and much more.



Memorial Hall Museum was founded by volunteers and continues to rely on volunteers today.

  • Get hands-on with the collection in the curatorial office by researching old objects and/or cataloguing new donations.
  • 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?

Let us know how you would like to help. For more info, please contact Ray Radigan at (413) 774-4466 or



Memorial Hall Museum hosts spring, summer, and fall semester internships for undergraduate and graduate students looking to pursue careers in many aspects of museum operations. Interns have the opportunity to work directly with the collection and participate in meaningful projects which serve as hands-on learning opportunities while benefiting the museum.

Cute little museum that is currently free for an anniversary year with exhibits on the town's 1704 raid, music, architecture, ceramics, etc. from the town (and region's) history. There's a lot of cool artifacts including a door that got slashed during the raid. There are a lot of rooms so it's actually quite a diverse collection and worth an hour-ish of your time. If you're in the area, it's a nice but small museum to visit.


The people who work here are so nice and know all about New England history and Deerfield! A very strong and diverse collection of items, including a house door from the attack on the village in 1704!


This museum was a fantastic place rich in local history/heritage while at the same time contextualizing the past in a way that makes it attainable to modern society. There are artifacts galore as well as several period rooms in which you can be transported back in time with only the use of one's imagination. Make sure to check out the door on the second floor. You'll know the one. It's halfway between the first and third floor. The accesability was very good with a dedicated ramp to enter and extremely helpful staff leading the way to and from the elevator. It is truly a museum one shouldn't miss when in the area.

A true 5.0 if you love New England history! We visited on a Wednesday in early June, could have easily spent a few good hours here, but had to pace ourselves. For an old historic house adapted and expanded for use as a museum, it is surprisingly accessible to elder visitors that may have some mobility challenges. One of the few sites in Deerfield that allows photography inside. A special shout out to ‘Tom’ who could not have been more accommodating with our special mobility needs. The photos won’t do this place justice, so please visit for yourself. (Yes, they do have an elevator).


Very nice museum. Went on father's day. Very enjoyable experience and very friendly staff. I recommend popping in if you are there. Coolest display is the door. This has a very interesting story.


This is must see if you're in Deerfield, Massachusetts. The Arts and Crafts gallery on the third floor is swoon worthy! I was stunned with the vibrancy of the colors in the fabrics and threads, as well as the imaginativeness of the artists who made them. Yes you were time-travelling, but what I saw in that specific exhibition, felt timeless. Not to say that there isn't an incredible amount of things to view from long, long ago as well... Worth the detour~


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


I spent two hours there.. that should say it all.
