The Robbins Museum is named for Maurice Robbins. Dr. Maurice Robbins 1899-1990 was one of the founders of the Massachusetts Archaeological Society in 1939 and our first president.

The Robbins Museum, located in Middleborough, Massachusetts, is a renowned cultural institution dedicated to preserving and showcasing the rich Native American heritage of the region.

The museum's origins can be traced back to the late 1800s when Robbins began collecting Native American artifacts from the local area. His collection grew significantly over the years, and in 1932, he established the Robbins Museum to house and exhibit these invaluable cultural treasures.

One of the museum's notable features is its extensive collection of Wampanoag artifacts. The Wampanoag Tribe, with its rich history and continued presence in Massachusetts, holds a special place in the museum's narrative. Visitors can learn about the Wampanoag people's enduring traditions, their interactions with European settlers, and their contributions to the cultural tapestry of the region.

The museum offers 4,550 square feet of display space with more than 3000 artifacts on display.
