The National Heritage Museum of Massachusetts was founded in 1975 by the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction?s Scottish Rite Masons. It is the group?s intention to preserve artefacts related to the history and evolution of American Freemasonry as well as fraternalism. The museum?s collection of the aforementioned items is considered to be one of the best in the U.S. The National Heritage Museum, however, also has other collections on display and they include decorative arts as well as documents and other types of artefacts and memorabilia regarding other significant events in the country?s history. One of its most popular exhibits would be the display featuring the city of Lexington during the American Revolution.

Current exhibits of the museum include Treasure Lands: 58 US National Parks in Focus, Curators? Choice: Favorites from the Collection, and Night Road: Photographs of Diners by John D. Woolf. Besides its variety of exhibits and permanent collection, the museum also has a library and archives section that?s open to the public from Wednesdays till Saturdays every 10:00AM until 1:00 PM.
