Museum housed in sprawling Cape Cod building on Main Street. Have wonderful ship collection, clothing and historical artifacts. Changing exhibitions and lovely guides. Sweet little shop with a variety of items from books to jewelry. A must see if you are visiting Centerville Village.

Love going to the Centerville Historical Society Museum during the Christmas Stroll. The folks that work there are very nice and know their stuff. Would highly recommend this in the winter and summer.

Enjoyed a couple of hours here. There's plenty to see and do, as you do not realise how big the actual building is.

We enjoyed visiting the museum, which is right next door to Captain David Kelley House Bed and Breakfast. There were a lot of interesting exhibits about local history for the town of Centerville. Museum staff were friendly and eager to show us around.

This museum is alot larger than it looks. Room after room of wonderful costume exhibits of old wedding dresses and military uniforms. It even had an old general store set up in one room with many old products. It also had antique furniture and an exhibit of chinese snuff bottles that were really unusual

We were fortunate to visit this excellent museum while on vacation in June 2013. At the time of our visit the Museum was showing an exhibition on native sons who fought & died in the Civil War. They had weapons, uniforms, letters and all types of artifacts expertly displayed. That was only one section, there are three floors to this... More

Quaint village museum. Local artifacts and a nice selection of turn of the century clothing. They keep it interesting with different programs throughout the year.

This museum is really a little gem. It looks so small on the exterior that you don't really expect much. Well, when your tour begins and you see exactly how nice a collection that small little building has and start hearing some of the history of the items included in the museum, you begin to really enjoy this visit and...
