National Heritage Museum

Located at 33 Marrett Road at the intersection of Route 2A and Massachusetts Avenue in Lexington, the National Heritage Museum tells the American story, highlighting “the rich diversity of American life across four centuries—how we as a people have worked and played, struggled and achieved.” Sowing the Seeds of Liberty: Lexington and the American Revolution is a long-term installation that illustrates what daily life was like for people during the American Revolution. The National Heritage Museum was founded by Scottish Rite Masons of the Northern Jurisdiction of the United States “as a gift to the nation on our country’s bicentennial.”
