The Boston Museum was a museum located in the city of Boston, Massachusetts, dedicated to the history of the city and region. Spock visited the Boston Museum during the brief period, during his service under Captain Christopher Pike, that he participated in a project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)
- Curiously, there does not appear to have been a "Boston Museum" at the time this novel was published in 1987. Plans to create such an institution were developed in the late 1990s, and the museum is anticipated to open in 2013.
