Historic New England partners with museums, galleries, and other venues to present exhibitions that draw from our Library and Archives, which contains more than one million items that document the region's architectural and cultural history, and our extraordinarily broad object collection, the largest assemblage of New England art and artifacts in the country.
Several of these exhibitions are available for rental by museums, galleries, and other venues. Learn more.
