The Malden Historical Museum, founded by Mary Kochtitzky in 1955, contains displays that reflect Malden?s history and treasures. It started out with only one room at the back of the Malden Library. Soon, more donations to the museum were made and so a much larger space was needed. It features the Dennis Collection of Egyptian Antiquities that contains items dating back to thousands of years. Eventually, the museum grew to become a favorite spot for visitors, young and adults.
In 1980, Floyd and Vera Brown donated their house to the museum. After an extensive renovation, the museum opened its doors to the public in 1983 in its permanent home, where it remains today.
There is no admission charge for everyone and anyone can visit the museum on Thursday, Wednesday, and Saturdays from 1:30p.m to 4:30p.m. Other hours are available for group tours, which are to be set through appointments. The museum also hosts special exhibits as well.
