About

Established in 1987

The Aberdeen Historical Museum is a small nonprofit 501(c)(3) museum in Aberdeen, Maryland. We collect, preserve, and share historical archives and artifacts that tell the story of the greater Aberdeen area.

The Aberdeen Historical Museum (previously known as the Aberdeen Room Archives and Museum, Inc.) connects the Aberdeen community with the area’s rich history to awaken an interest in local history and to inspire new perspectives on the world we live in today. 

The Museum is open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 10-1. We welcome you to stop by to visit our exhibitions, conduct research, and share your stories. The Aberdeen Historical Museum is largely run by volunteers and funded through your generous gifts and donations. Please consider supporting our mission by volunteering, donating, or becoming a member today!
