Commonwealth MuseumFree: All time

The first public schools, the first battles for American independence, the first abolitionist newspaper, Massachusetts has always been a leader in the quest for equal rights and opportunities. The Commonwealth Museum brings the story to life with state of the art interactive exhibits. Its dramatic “treasures gallery” holds the great historic documents that protect American liberties. The official website also provides downloadable mp3 files of the Guide by Cell audio tour of the museum.
