Strawbery Banke Museum returns the skills and crafts of traditional boat-building to the neighborhood of Puddle Dock that was built around boats, boat-building and maritime trade. The gundalow Piscataqua was built on museum grounds in 2011 and the non-profit Gundalow Company helps the Museum interpret Portsmouth’s maritime history on the water. The Boatshop at Strawbery Banke showcases the knowledge and skills of Piper Boatworks. Port of Portsmouth is the major exhibit of exquisite ship models and other maritime art and artifacts opening July 1, 2016. As Strawbery Banke enhances its maritime interpretation, it includes the active work of traditional boat-builders and opportunities for the public to participate in programs and workshops.
A cultural, community and economic initiative to restore and lease underutilized properties at Strawbery Banke Museum in the historic center of downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
