In November 2007, a new exhibit will be opening! It will display rare historical treasures from the vaults of the Massachusetts Archives. The design will include state of the art technology, interactive displays, and a setting that evokes the atmosphere of early Massachusetts. Our Common Wealth, as the exhibit is titled, is designed to be kid-friendly but interesting to all.
