Needham History Center & Museum


Our History is Our Community!

Local history is the story of our community family. The Needham History Center tells these stories about how our town became the place we know – about how our history helps us to understand our contemporary life.  

But we can’t do it without You!  Your membership makes our activities possible. They also make them all worthwhile. We share your love for Needham, and your interest in its past and its future. We are very grateful for the part you play in keeping the History Center strong and vital!

  • FREE admission to our Museum and programs, so everyone can participate
  • Educational resources to the schools at all grades
  • Events and programs in partnership with town and civic organizations
  • Stories and information that bring us closer to our community
