Massachusetts Treasures

A Guide to Marvelous, Must-See Museums

Well known for its world-renowned art museums—from the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston—Massachusetts is also home to numerous institutions with more eclectic collections and, oftentimes, lower profiles. These include Mansfield's National Black Doll Museum of History and Culture, Watertown's Plumbing Museum, and Granville's Noble and Cooley Center for Historic Preservation.

In Massachusetts Treasures, Chuck D'Imperio explores more than forty museums scattered throughout the Bay State, from Cape Cod to the Berkshires. Many—but not all—might be considered "offbeat," and each and every one is enchanting. Through personal visits and interviews with founders and directors, D'Imperio offers an inside glimpse into some of the Commonwealth's most unique museums, providing a valuable guide for road warriors and history buffs discovering Massachusetts either for the first or the tenth time.

About the Author

Chuck D'Imperio is a well-known radio personality from upstate New York and author of several books, including Unknown Museums of Upstate New York: A Guide to 50 Treasures.

Review

"D'Imperio introduced me, an avid museumgoer and museum professional, to venues I had never heard of before. After reading this book, I plan to visit many that piqued my interest."—Kenneth C. Turino, manager of community engagement and exhibitions at Historic New England and coauthor of Haymarket



"Massachusetts Treasures provides useful information about the plethora of fascinating museums in the Commonwealth to help readers think about where they might want to visit. It is especially good at highlighting lesser-known museums."—Barbara A. Mathews, public historian and director of academic programs at Historic Deerfield
