The museum may be temporarily closed, but that does not mean you can’t experience our history!

As we all hunker down for the weeks ahead, the museum staff is planning ways for you to discover more about our collection, hear some interesting stories that we’ve uncovered, and learn more about what goes on behind-the-scenes at the museum.

If you are not already following us on social media, we encourage you to do so for more of this experience. Check us out on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

In the meantime, you can explore our collections online, including maps and surveys from the Chambers Collection, incredible images from the Cheyne Studio Collection, and a wealth of photos and materials donated by individuals over the years. There are a variety of ways to search, and even an interactive map to browse collections relating to sites, structures, cemeteries, and waterways, or by neighborhood district or areas outside Hampton.
