I will start off by saying that if it were not for my wife picking up a brochure at the local library, I would have never known this place existed. Nearby UMass Boston and the JFK Presidential Library on Columbia Point in Boston, it is housed within the Massachusetts Archives. It has information on topics from the days of the Pilgrims landing on Plymouth Rock to the Industrial Revolution and everything in between. It also houses a number of documents like the Charter to the Massachusetts Bay Colony , Declaration Of Independence as well as the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Definitely worth going to see, especially if you are someone who enjoys history. Another good thing about it is that it is free--both admission and parking. If you love history, despite its size, it is definitely worth checking out--it definitely has a lot of information to share.
