TAUNTON, MA—The Old Colony History Museum is thrilled to announce its upcoming feature on the Rhode Island PBS television program, Treasures Inside the Museum. 
Treasures Inside the Museum is a series highlighting museums in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. Representatives from each museum describe how the museum came to be, what special artifacts are in the collection, and how it operates today. The collection is intended to be utilized by educators and students to recognize local history and to show how varied museums can be. Video content demonstrates how science, history, culture, and art come together through the institution’s holdings to tell their own specific stories. 
The Old Colony History Museum has long been a custodian of our region's heritage, preserving and showcasing artifacts that reflect the diverse and vibrant history of our community. With this feature on Treasures Inside the Museum, we are delighted to bring our collection to a wider audience, fostering a deeper appreciation for our shared history.
