When the winter season arrives and colder temperatures consume the Northeast, it can seem challenging to find fun and new things to see and do. This simply isn’t the case in Beverly, where locals and visitors alike can take advantage of a variety of promotions and activities at area museums.
Although it took some time to escape Salem’s shadow, Beverly certainly isn’t short on character or history, which you can experience first-hand at the John Cabot House, Hale Farm, and Balch House. With centuries of stories in their walls, rotating collections and exhibits, programs and events, there’s plenty to take in.
No matter your taste, finding things to do in Salem, MA when it’s cold out is easier than you might think. With over 350 years of stories, The House of the Seven Gables is a must-visit destination if you’re interested in local history, as are the Witch History Museum and Pirate Museum.
If you’re more interested in visiting art museums, the Cape Ann Museum is more of your scene. A leading center for artists since the 18th century, the museum houses the largest collection of work by renowned marine artist Fitz Henry Lane, as well as other prominent painters and sculptors who lived on or visited Cape Ann.
