The Massachusetts Archaeological Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering a respect for the Native peoples of Massachusetts through education, research, and preservation. The Society operates the Robbins Museum of Archaeology, which functions today thanks to our passionate team of volunteers who put tremendous effort into giving guided tours, creating and executing educational programming, caring for our collections, maintaining our historic building, and much more. Explore 12,000 years of Native presence in southeastern New England through displays of Native tools, apparel, a diorama of a 4,300 year old village, the Doyle Doll collection, and our Walk Through Time exhibit. We offer customized programs and tours for all ages, spring and fall lecture series, and a research library open by appointment.
