The Martha's Vineyard Museum started its life as the Dukes County Historical Society in 1922 with a small collection of revolutionary era documents. After several changes in direction and name, in 2006, Martha's Vineyard Historical Society decided to change the name to the Martha's Vineyard Museum. The new name more accurately reflects the mission and accumulated holdings such as objects, documents, photographs, historic books, and paintings.
The goal of the museum is to inspire people to understand, explore and discover their island heritage. The museum has a number of permanent exhibits that range from the Thomas Cooke House and Historic Herb Garden to Hands on History Lab, and Enchanted Isle: The Story of Martha's Vineyard. The museum is the steward of three island lighthouses: The East Chop, Gay Head and Edgartown.
