The MVM Quarterly is the Martha’s Vineyard Museum’s journal of Island history. Published continuously since 1959, every issue of the Quarterly reveals some unexplored aspect of Island history through articles, illustrations, photographs, and transcripts of primary sources. The Quarterly received a facelift in early 2018. To learn more about it, click here.

Contributors to the Quarterly explore topics as varied as: Island tourism, the natural history of the Island, the social world on board a whaling ship, the Wampanoag culture; art, architecture, and oddities; European colonial settlement, and the role of the Island in American history. MVM members receive a free subscription to the journal as part of their membership benefits. Become a Member today!
