Art and artifacts that tell the stories of New England

At Historic New England Museums and Online

Historic New England exhibitions showcase the nation’s most extensive collection of New England objects and archival materials. We present these exhibitions at several of our historic properties, online, and occasionally at partner venues throughout the region.

At the Eustis Estate

For the first time ever, more than forty of some of the finest works of art from the Historic New England collection will be on display together. Artful Stories is a fresh look at the regional stories told through art – stories about the people who sat for portraits, the artists, the owners, and the places. See exquisite works of art made in or about New England spanning more than 200 years and develop a deeper understanding of New England’s artistic legacy. Open at the Eustis Estate in Milton, Massachusetts.
