Welcome to Lynn Museum & Arts Center!

Located in the heart of the Downtown Lynn Cultural District, the Lynn Historical Society was founded in 1897 to collect, preserve, and illuminate the city’s remarkable history. We have since evolved into a vibrant cultural campus, including our Museum at 590 Washington Street and Studios at 25 Exchange Street.

The Lynn Museum & Arts Center offers changing exhibitions and innovative youth and adult programs that engage and enrich Lynn’s diverse community. We also provide affordable studio space for artists, musicians, cultural organizations, and creative entrepreneurs. We encourage active participation in exploring the city’s past while shaping a shared vision for its future.

The Studios at Lynn Museum & Art Center (formerly LynnArts Inc.) at 25 Exchange Street is part of the Historic Bank Block in Downtown Lynn. While it has retained some of its banking features–including bank vaults on the first and second floors–the building has functioned as an arts center for over 30 years. Many know the building for the musical talent that had passed through its doorways when popular rock radio station WFNX called LynnArts home (1983-2012), while others know the building for the “Lynn Stories” mural, which beautifully captures the history of Lynn from its early shoemaking days through today. Learn more about the mural and the artists here.

In 2014, the Lynn Museum merged with LynnArts, Inc. and has owned and operated the building for the past ten years. The Studios continue to celebrate and support the legacy of the creative community in Lynn and the Greater North Shore, offering private spaces for contemporary artists, two public gallery spaces, and the Neal Rantoul Vault Theater.

Main & Community Galleries (First Floor)
Galleries at LynnArts, a private 501c3 arts-based collaborative, currently leases the galleries within the LynnArts building. The Galleries At LynnArts (GALA) is led by a group of local artists and art organizers who have designed two galleries and a gallery shop. These spaces are used to exhibit group and solo shows and house a gallery shop filled with arts and crafts produced by North Shore artists and makers. Contact info@galleriesatlynnarts.org for a special showing or to inquire about classes.

Neal Rantoul Vault Theater (First Floor)
Lynn Music Foundation, Inc. currently leases the black box theater. The organization’s mission is to provide resources to Lynn artists in music and the arts, helping them to reach their fullest potential by creating an environment for collaboration and providing professional development opportunities for Lynn artists. Additionally, they host a variety of events, such as concerts, workshops, and master classes, that provide members of the community with the opportunity to network and learn more about the music industry.
