The Highland House Museum takes a look back at the history of Truro–the native people, the early European settlers, the farmers, and fishermen who made this town unique. Our museum is housed in what used to be a popular turn-of-the-century summer hotel. Located in the Truro Highlands Historic District, the museum boasts a collection that encompasses shipwreck models, Colonial tools, period textiles and furniture, and a room devoted to Josephine and Edward Hopper, who spent summers living and painting in Truro. In addition to our permanent collection, we curate three seasonal exhibitions every summer and offer a Wednesday evening lecture series. In the summer of 2019, we are launching a new series of family programs on Sundays. We are open from June 1st through September 30th.
