The Nye Museum is now open for the Summer 2021 season. Come by to explore our property, hike our trails, or to experience guided and self-guided historical tours. There’s a lot that’s new to explore, including a newly restored children’s room in the Benjamin Nye house and a special exhibit on 17th century heritage.
The museum is located just off Route 6A near the East Sandwich Post Office. We offer free tours of the Benjamin Nye Homestead, a historical landmark first established in 1678. Visitors are welcome to take self-guided tours of the Nye Mill Museum, which tells the history of grist milling on the property. You can also walk along the stream through the Old Fish Hatchery Trail, which includes an audio guide detailing the property’s history and the nature that surrounds it. Stop by the Visitors Center at the Grange Hall, open Tuesday through Saturday 11AM – 4PM.
Our gift shop includes page-turning history books, educational toys for kids, and seasonal quilts. All purchases made at the gift shop benefit the museum’s mission. The museum and its organizers are dedicated to promoting and preserving the Benjamin Nye Homestead, chronicling the property’s historical significance, and fostering community engagement through historical education and events.
