About Our Auction
Our annual fall fundraiser raises funds to support Lynn Museum/LynnArts' programming efforts, including our school tours program, "History Detectives" for Lynn's third-grade students, free admission days and activities for Lynn families, Downtown Lynn Open Studios, and our "Second Saturdays" program, which offers free admission and art-making activities to the Greater Lynn community.
About Lynn Museum/LynnArts
The mission of Lynn Museum/LynnArts (LM/LA) is to preserve, interpret and promote the diverse cultural heritage of Lynn. We maintain a collection of over 10,000 objects chronicling Lynn’s rise from early American settlement to industrial powerhouse. Through rotating exhibitions and innovative programs, we encourage active participation in the city's past while shaping a vision for its future.
Founded in 1897 by a group of citizens dedicated to documenting their rapidly changing city, the Lynn Historical Society evolved over a century into the Lynn Museum. In 2014, the Lynn Museum merged with its neighbor on Exchange Street, LynnArts, which offers studio, gallery and theatre space for local artists. In 2022, the Lynn Museum/LynnArts will celebrate its 125th anniversary.
