STRAWBERY BANKE MUSEUM

 

Emerging Renewed -- An Interpretive Tour of the Historic Waterfront Neighborhood of Strawbery Banke
Daily through October 31, 2020, 10 am - 5 pm

**The historic homes are closed to the public, due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, with tours focusing on the exteriors of houses, the historic landscapes, and gardens. 

The re-imagined visitor experience at Strawbery Banke Museum allows visitors to experience outdoor sites exploring the resiliency of the historic waterfront neighborhood throughout time. This daily, public program invites guests to experience their own recoveries from COVID-19 restrictions by recognizing the parallels between everyday life in the present and the past.

By popular demand, Emerging Renewed Tours resume as self-guided experiences. Visitors explore the 10-acre campus and lanes lined with historic houses and gardens, at their convenience, meeting interpreters and costumed roleplayers, from a safe distance, portraying life through the centuries in the Puddle Dock neighborhood. Strawbery Banke is providing a complimentary guide, to aid guests' self-guided tours and describe how the families of Puddle Dock endured the challenges of their times that in many ways mirrored the trials of the pandemic.  

Please note, the historic homes remain closed to the public as the museum showcases its architectural gems among the historic landscapes and gardens. 

Tickets are valid for two consecutive days and are available for purchase at the door.  Members & Military Families*, Free. Non-members: Adult $15, Children (ages 5 - 17) $10. Under 5, free.
