Mission Statement

The primary purpose of the West End Museum is to operate and maintain a neighborhood museum dedicated to the collection, preservation, and interpretation of the history and culture of the West End of Boston. The Museum acknowledges its role as and educational institution and a trustee of significant material culture. The West End Museum fulfills its mission by providing exhibits to the public on a regular basis, by providing access to its collections for research, by providing a resource to the West End Neighborhood for historical and cultural interests. It involves the public in its mission through outreach programming, neighborhood events, and educational programming in the school systems, thereby increasing and sustaining the public's appreciation of an important American urban neighborhood from the seventeenth century to the present time.


About the West End Museum:

We are a Boston neighborhood museum looking for people who are interested in the history and culture of Boston. The Museum is dedicated to the documentation and preservation of the former West End neighborhood’s diverse cultural heritage.

You can expect to find a casual workplace of friendly men and women who are welcoming and eager to engage with the public. A previous knowledge of the neighborhood is not required, but an appreciation of its historical significance is recommended.

The Museum is conveniently located close to the MBTA North Station, Charles Street Station and Bowdoin Station.

Call 617-723-2125, email thewestendmuseum@gmail.com, or visit www.thewestendmuseum.org for more information. We would love to speak with you and possibly arrange for a visit.
