Martha's Vineyard Museum

Founded in 1922 as the Dukes County Historical Society, the Martha's Vineyard Museum is dedicated to inspiring people to discover, explore, and strengthen their connections to the Island and its diverse heritage. 

The museum maintains both permanent and special exhibits at its current location in Edgartown and is the steward of three of the Island's lighthouses. It is now in the midst of a  major campaign to relocate to the old Marine Hospital in Vineyard Haven.

The Gale Huntington Research Library functions as both a research library and archive. It holds approximately 5,000 books.
