Please join us in honoring fallen U.S. service members as TAPS is performed at 3:00 p.m. on the front lawn of Dedham Museum & Archive. HONOR. REFLECT. REMEMBER.

The Museum will open specially on Memorial Day from 3:05-4:00 for those in attendance who would like to be the first to see the newly installed exhibit on Revolutionary War hero Major General the Marquis de Lafayette.

Dedham Museum & Archive is a Blue Star Museum. From May 18th (Armed Forces Day) through Labor Day, September 2nd, free admission is offered to the nation’s active-duty  military personnel and their families, including National Guard and Reserve.
