Just in time for Halloween, visit the Marblehead Museum for a new exhibition on the history of Victorian funerary practices.
In the 1800s, death visited often, thanks to disease, war, and four pandemics in 60 years. See how the Victorians honored their dead and managed their grief through elaborate artifacts, art, poetry, photographs, clothing, jewelry, and more. This exhibition includes artifacts never before exhibited at the museum, including treasures made and used in Marblehead.
The exhibition is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10am to 4pm at the Marblehead Museum, located at 170 Washington Street in Marblehead, MA.
