Activity Overview

The Strawberry Banke Museum is an open-air history museum in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Visitors to the museum can travel back in time to the 17th and 18th centuries while exploring historic buildings and gardens, viewing informative exhibits, and taking part in hands-on programs and activities with interpreters in period costumes. If you're interested in history, you're sure to enjoy exploring this fascinating site which tells the stories of local figures such as Paul Revere.

Things to Do

  • Explore the Victorian Children's Garden, a living history garden with all kinds of kid-friendly exhibits.
  • Visit the Discovery Center, an interactive exhibit where children can learn how to do old-fashioned crafts and play games that were popular centuries ago.
  • Take your little one to the Wheelwright House, where they can dress up in period clothing while exploring a home that dates back to the late 1700s.
