Passport to History is a joint effort of nine local museums, spearheaded by the Old Colony History Museum, to share and explore the fantastic and diverse history of southeastern Massachusetts. At any participating museum, guests can pick up a passport and complete a location-specific activity to earn a passport stamp. Altogether, visitors will have a chance to explore and learn about the exciting and varied history of the Old Colony region.
The participating museums are Old Colony History Museum, Fuller Craft Museum, Carpenter Museum, Hanover Historical Society, Freetown Historical Society, Middleborough Historical Association, The Robbins Museum, Duxbury Rural and Historical Society, and Attleboro Area Industrial Museum. Many of the listed museums are offering free admission for those on their first visit with the passport.
Additionally, to celebrate the launch of the passport, we are holding a raffle for those able to visit sites by September 1, 2017. Prizes include tickets to the New England Aquarium and tickets to the Paw Sox. All you have to do is share a picture taken at one of the museums and tag it #PassporttoHistory to enter! You can enter a total of 9 times if you make it to all 9! Stop by the Museum to learn more and we hope you enjoy exploring local museums this summer!
