  • Emily Dickinson Museum
    The Amherst College?owned Emily Dickinson Museum preserves the memory and work of the poet and hyphen master by maintaining the estate where she lived and composed many of her nearly 1,800 poems. The museum includes The Homestead, her birthplace and longtime residence, which stands near The Evergreens, where her brother, Austin, lived with his family. Emily and her siblings were all avid gardeners, cultivating flowers and hedges throughout their 3-acre estate. Emily herself maintained a conservatory for her collection of exotic plants, and she drew endless inspiration from her natural surroundings for her work. The Emily Dickinson Museum welcomes field trips for groups of students and schedules events throughout the year to celebrate her poetry and role in American literary history. Interactive poetry discussion groups meet at various Amherst locations, keeping Dickinson's style relevant by communicating only in rhyming quatrains.

  • Wistariahurst Museum
    Many a 19th-century summer day, William Skinner would wipe his brow with a silk handkerchief and breathe in the sweet scent of wisteria vines. His wife, Sarah, had trained the vines to grow alongside their sprawling home, which he had built in 1874 with the profits from his silk-manufacturing business. He named it Wistariahurst in honor of his wife’s prized vines, which continued to grow even after the stately home passed down to the next generation of the Skinner family and, in 1959, to the city of Holyoke. The wisteria vines have not stood the test of time alone. The home's elaborate woodwork, original leather wall coverings, and elegant columns have also remained intact. Every week, the docents at Wistariahurst Museum lead tours across the historical estate, elaborating on the Skinner family's history and showcasing collections of architectural prints and silk textiles from the family's manufacturing business. In addition to tours, staff members regularly offer workshops that teach Girl Scouts about such Victorian-era pastimes as knitting and playing parlor games with the ghosts in the attic. In the warmer months, Wistariahurst’s immaculately manicured gardens play host to a wide variety of events. Concerts and lectures remain open to the public, and private rentals allow guests to hold weddings or play ill-advised games of hide-and-seek in the minotaur labyrinth.

  • Springfield Museums
    Springfield Museums showcases a sculpture garden honoring Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), who was raised in Springfield. All four buildings are centrally located around the scenic view of a quadrangle. Michele & Donald D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts Most nostalgic images: the Currier & Ives prints at the D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts, the only museum with a permanent gallery dedicated to their lithographs Artists featured in the French Impressionist exhibit: Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Gauguin The setting: The museum is housed in an Art Deco–style estate and opened in 1934 George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum Best way to try on armor without traveling back in time: the Asian-themed Art Discovery Center for kids Why even the windows are masterpieces: Not all the museum's art is framed or behind velvet ropes; some of it is incorporated right into the building's design. The Tiffany Glass Company specially designed intricate windows for the museum, and they're the only museum-specific Tiffany windows to survive today. Most unusual feature: The ashes of George Smith and his wife are interred on the second floor. Springfield Science Museum Two big scientific events of 1859: Springfield Museums received its first exhibit donations and Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species Kids will love: the full-size T-rex replica in the dinosaur exhibit The next best thing to being an astronaut: touching the outer-space rocks in Astronomy Hall Lyman & Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History Founded: 2009—it's the newest of all the museums What you'll see: items from Springfield in the 19th and 20th centuries, including a Rolls-Royces and Indian motorcycles manufactured in Springfield. What you won't see: proof that this is the Springfield in The Simpsons Museum within a museum: The exhibits of the Connecticut Valley Historical Museum have been moved here.

  • New England Air Museum
    It takes three large exhibit hangars and an open-air tarmac to hold New England Air Museum?s large collection of more than 80 civilian and military aircraft. Here you can see one of the remaining Boeing B-29 Superfortresses, one of the most advanced bombers during World War II. The museum also contains the Republic RC-3 Seabee, a single-engine amphibian aircraft. The collection encompasses helicopters, gyrocopters, and gliders. There?s even the Silas Brooks Balloon Basket, a basket circa-1870 that?s thought to be the oldest surviving aircraft in the United States. A variety of special events run periodically, such as kid-friendly demonstrations that explain of the scientific principles that make flight possible, and the Build and Fly Station, where visitors are encouraged construct and keep their own aircraft.

  • Old Sturbridge Village
    In 1935, the Wells family sought out a place to display their massive collection of New England antiquities. When they couldn't find one that was sufficient, they decided to build a museum. Since its founding, Old Sturbridge Village—a living-history museum with its own rich history—has granted visitors a chance to experience New England life in the 19th-century firsthand. As they navigate a town and rustic countryside filled with 40 historic buildings, including an old schoolhouse, mansion homes, and three water-powered mills, visitors encounter heritage farm animals and interpreters in period costume. At regular times throughout the day, specific sites become interactive. A shoemaker cobbles a new pair of shoes, a blacksmith submerges steaming hunks of metal, and a soldier makes lifelike musket sounds with his mouth—all for the benefit of live audiences. Throughout the year, events such as cooking and craft-making classes further enhance the educational experience.
