A Visit to the Commonwealth Museum

The Commonwealth before it was the Commonwealth

Although Marash Girl was unable to photograph the rare original documents on exhibit in darkened rooms at the Commonwealth Museum, she was able to capture a feel for the museum with these photographs.  Very special, however, is the following announcement:  "In partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Friends of the Commonwealth Museum is selling a beautiful portfolio trio of restrikes from the original copper plates of Paul Revere."  And for the elementary school kids, the interactive exhibits are designed to intrigue.
Listen to the story of Moshup and the Aquinnah Wampanoag
The Arrival of the Irish
 Massachusetts & Rhode Island Antiquarian Booksellers are particularly intrigued by the interactive exhibit of historic documents.
