PVMA’s “Peony” logo is based on this c. 1840 quilt

We are located in the village of Deerfield, Massachusetts, but as the earliest historical society in the region, people from throughout Franklin County—as well as Hampshire and Hampden counties—entrusted their family stories to the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association. From fossils of dinosaur tracks to 20th century artifacts, this extraordinary collection continues to be enhanced by both donations and purchases.

Use the links on the sidebar to the right to learn about our Special Exhibits, Online Exhibits, and Highlights. You may also browse through some of the highlights of the collection here, and listen to an audio tour of the museum produced by Yankee Magazine.

Memorial Hall Museum is now closed for the season. It will reopen in May 2017—weekends only in May; Tuesday through Sunday (closed Monday) June through October. Hours: 11 am–4:30 pm. In the meantime, follow our off-season activities and musings on the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, Memorial Hall Museum, and Old Deerfield Craft Fair Facebook pages.

Admission is $6 for adults; $3 for youth and students 6-21.  The museum offers group tours. Please call 413-774-7476 ext 10 if you would like to schedule a group tour.
