Strawbery Banke presents 300 years of history in Portsmouth through the stories of the families who lived in this waterfront “Puddle Dock” neighborhood.
That community of people who lived out their daily struggles and joys are brought to life by costumed roleplayers, interpreters, and traditional craftspeople. Visitors bring their own memories to enrich their experiences here.
Open daily 10 AM - 5 PM
Tour historic houses on original sites, meet engaging costumed roleplayers, watch traditional crafts demonstrations, explore historical gardens, and experience engaging exhibits like "Water Has a Memory."
