A place to learn,

A place to gather,
A place to preserve.

Strawbery Banke Museum, in the heart of historic downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is an authentic nearly 10-acre outdoor history museum dedicated to bringing 300+ years of American history in the same waterfront neighborhood to life. The Museum is a place for children, adults, multigenerational families, and groups to gather to explore eight heritage gardens, historic buildings, and traditional crafts, preservation programs, hands-on activities, the stories told by costumed roleplayers, and the changing exhibits that offer hours of fun and discovery. The Museum's restored buildings and open space invite visitors to immerse themselves in the past, using objects from the museum's collection of 30,000 artifacts, and the histories of the families who lived and worked in the Puddle Dock neighborhood to engage, educate, and entertain.
