Longyear Museum, conveniently located just outside Boston and easily accessible by public transportation, offers exhibits, publications, and programs about the life of Mary Baker Eddy, one of America’s most noted women, as well as tours of several houses where she once lived. Mrs. Eddy discovered Christian Science in 1866 and spent over 40 years making her discovery known through healing, writing, and teaching. The Longyear Museum collections - including paper documents, photographs, art, and artifacts, ranging from the smallest tintype photo to the largest house - serve as evidence of Mrs. Eddy’s life and work for current and future generations.

LONGYEAR MUSEUM is an independent historical museum dedicated to advancing the understanding of the life and work of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science.
