Operated in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Blue Hills Trailside Museum is the interpretive center for the state-owned Blue Hills Reservation.

The sanctuary features a natural history museum and outdoor exhibits of native wildlife. The animals on display—including a River Otter and Red Foxes—are non-releasable wildlife and would not survive in the wild.
