170 Washington Street


The Museum, Exhibits and J.O.J. Frost Gallery are located at 170 Washington Street across from the Jeremiah Lee Mansion. There is a changing exhibit gallery on the first floor that presents new exhibits 2-3 times a year. The changing exhibits focus on many aspects of Marblehead’s history, drawing from the Museum’s collections as well as loans from other collections. Our current exhibit is “Marblehead and the Grand Banks”.

The permanent collection of  JOJ Frost Folk Art is being renovated and will become the J.O.J. Frost Gallery and Education Center during the summer of 2016. For more information about the plans for this gallery, please click here. To see our informative video or donate to the project, please click here.

Workshops, lectures and exhibit openings are held at 170 Washington St. The museum offices and front desk are located here as well as the gift shop. The Marblehead Museum Archives are stored in special archival space here. Aside from regular business hours, 170 is also open for special seasonal events such as the Marblehead Christmas Walk weekend. Please contact us at 781-631-1768.
