The Beehive: the official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

This Week @ MHS

Looking for a way to beat the heat?  Come on in and enjoy the air-conditioning at the MHS. Our exhibition History Drawn with Light is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Browse over 50 historical photographs -- starting with the oldest daguerreotype in our collection, Old Feather Store (1840), and ranging through to the work of photographer Francis Blake who experimented with high-speed photography in the late 19th century -- and spend time browsing our reference set of books about photography available in the exhibition area.  

On Saturday morning, our guided building tour The History and Collections of the MHS begins at 10:00 AM in our front lobby.  This ninety minute tour explores the art and architecture of the MHS, with a knowledgeable guide ready to answer your questions.
