Osterville Historical Museum - News & Events


2020 Schedule of Events

The Museum buildings are currently closed but outdoor events are scheduled.

Please check back here or on our Facebook page for updates.

 2020 Rotating Exhibits:

“Osterville Voices” For almost 50 years, the museum has been capturing oral histories of Osterville residents. Listen to their stories in their own words and their own voices.

“Give Us the Vote: Osterville’s Role in the Suffragist Movement” Did you know that Wianno served as a “Haven” to Anna Howard Shaw—a prime force behind the adoption of the 19th Amendment. She was a reverend, a doctor, and a history-maker. And she did it all here in Osterville.

Antique Car Parade was cancelled in 2020 but we will be back in 2021!
