The museum is a great place to begin your exploration of Saugus Iron Works National Historic site. The museum has two rooms full of exhibits and artifacts excavated during the archaeological dig performed on-site in the 1940s-1950s.
Much of the museum building was constructed during Wallace Nutting's ownership of the Iron Works House around 1917. The caretaker of the Iron Works House at that time, Edward Guy, was also a master blacksmith. Guy used this building as his blacksmith shop where he made reproduction iron pieces for Nutting and created other iron pieces for sale.
