The Hammond Castle Museum is a dynamic STEM museum offering guided and self guided tours, temporary exhibits, cultural events and educational programming. Candlelight and spiritualism tours, concerts, movies and more take place throughout the year.  Built in the late 1920s as the home and laboratory of inventor, John Hays Hammond, Jr, the museum’s architectural style is mixture of a medieval castle, a Gothic cathedral, and a Renaissance-era French village set amongst Roman ruins. On permanent display are exhibits relating to Hammond’s many patents, including his work with radio control, television, military, and nautical inventions.


At nearly a century old, the museum is not handicapped accessible. For more information, please contact Hammond Castle Museum at info@hammondcastle.org, 978-283-2080 or visit www.hammondcastle.org to purchase tickets.
