Forbes House Museum

215 Adams Street
Milton, MA 02186


Mission Statement

The Forbes House Museum explores America’s birth as a global economic power in the 19th century through the prism of one family’s inspiring stories of adventure, innovation, entrepreneurial spirit, and civic leadership.

“As to my success in worldly affairs, I have been mainly indebted to the accidents of good birth, good early counsels, good relatives who had the power to push me on in the world—sometimes faster than I desired, and certainly faster than I deserved…”

Captain Robert Bennet Forbes, taken from his Personal Reminiscences, 1876
