Built in the Georgian style, the Benjamin Caryl House served as home to the Caryl family until 1928, when it was given to the town and placed under the care and maintenance of the Dover Historical Society. It is particularly noteworthy as a structure - as very few changes were made over the years - and for its first two families, the town's first minister and his son, George, the first doctor.

Just as a museum is a place for the muses who inspire art, so an athenæum is a place for Athena, the goddess of wisdom who inspires intellectual pursuits.

Boston Children's Museum (BCM) was founded in 1913 by a dedicated group of teachers who wanted to expose city children to objects from the natural world and also create an innovative center for the exchange of materials and ideas that would advance the teaching of science. BCM has evolved into an internationally recognized children's museum that develops and delivers informal education for children in the areas of science, culture, health, and the arts.
