Colchester History Museum
Home of the Colchester Historical Society!
The Colchester History Museum is a two-story fully handicapped-accessible building.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Colchester History Museum
will be closed until it is deemed safe to reopen to the public.
When we reopen, you will be able to visit on
Sundays, 12:00-3:00 pm. or by appointment.
Housed in the old “Ballard Homestead,” the museum offers two floors
of temporary and permanent exhibits featuring the history of Colchester.
The Colchester History Museum is the headquarters of the Colchester Historical Society.
Founded in 1963, the Colchester Historical Society preserves
the material and archival culture of Colchester residents
past and present, and tells their stories
through compelling exhibits and
engaging public programs for adults, children,
and families on-site and throughout the community.
The museum is located at 24 Linwood Avenue in Colchester, adjacent to the Cragin Memorial Library. Admission is free and there is ample free parking behind the museum.
