Rotating exhibits are great deep dives into various parts of Marblehead's long and various history, but my favorite part of this museum is the JOJ Frost artwork upstairs. It's unlike anything you've ever seen and provides a raw look at what growing up in Marblehead was like for one person.

They are in the process of revamping this museum, and the people we talked to there were really nice, welcoming and full of energy about the museum. Most of what they have is art by J.O.J. Frost who didn't start painting until his 70s. We enjoyed his art which is mostly Marblehead history.

Came to visit this light house again in Marblehead. Then there is a nice walk and beautiful view of the ocean/ Loved it as always.

I know I have to renew my membership and it comes along with some pretty nice perks as well. There is a Garden Party held on the Jeremiah Lee Mansion Grounds with all the members-very nice.
Plants sales, visit other lovely homes in Marblehead as well!

There were two impressive exhibits on when I visited; one featured antique toys and a fairly extensive collection of the folk art of J.O.J. Frost.

Both the docent and one of the administrative employees were exceedingly friendly and more than happy to give a tour / answer questions.

There is no fee to enter this museum (no photos allowed). Visit the website for more information about ongoing exhibits.
