Behind The Scenes

This video series takes you behind the scenes of Historic Deerfield: highlighting the work of the museum’s staff, getting a peak at rare items in the collections, and going to parts of the museum the public never gets to see.

Behind the Scenes: Smith College Course

Every year, Historic Deerfield’s Director of Academic Programs, Barbara Mathews, teaches a course for Smith College on the Material Culture of Early New England. The course explores material culture and museum work, and many of the curatorial staff help to teach parts of the course. Due to the pandemic, the 2021 course was virtual – which meant students would not be able to visit Historic Deerfield in person to explore the Flynt Center, learn about handling objects, and study the material culture in the museum’s collection. Staff filmed several videos for the course, and they are so interesting we wanted to share them with you! If you’ve ever been curious about a curator’s work, how we study objects, or want to go behind the scenes on the tour of the Flynt Center – we invite you to watch!

Inside the Galleries Series

The Inside the Galleries series takes you inside Historic Deerfield’s exhibitions and collections for an exclusive, private tour with our curators. The first series features a private tour with Curator of Textiles, Ned Lazaro in the Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery in the Flynt Center of Early New England Life.
