Step over the threshold of history … into life in one of our country’s oldest waterfront neighborhoods. Strawbery Banke is a 10-acre living history museum that has preserved the lifestyles and traditions of four centuries of New Englanders. Here you can see 40 buildings – most on their original sites – spanning from the late 1600s to the mid-1950s. From the spare storefronts of colonial merchants to the elegant Georgian-style mansion of Governor Goodwin, from the humble dwellings of early Jewish immigrants to the penny candy counter of the WWII-era Abbott Store, Strawbery Banke tells the stories of a neighborhood over time.
SELF-GUIDED TOURS (May 1 through October 31)
Upon arriving at the Museum, our friendly staff will give your group an orientation and site overview. Guests will then be free to stroll about our grounds on a self-guided tour. We suggest allotting 1½ to 2 hours to tour the Museum.
