Nye Museum Offering Tours through the Fall Season

Enjoy a fun afternoon exploring the Nye Museum, where you can discover how early American communities lived and prospered. 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 throughout the Fall season. 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. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the museum will not offer indoor tours of the house museum until further notice. Serene, inviting, and brimming with local history, the Nye Museum will transport you back to colonial times.
