Strawbery Banke Museum, in the heart of historic downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is an authentic 10-acre outdoor history museum, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and dedicated to bringing 300+ years of American history to life.
Strawbery Banke is a place to have fun learning about architecture, heritage plants and foodways, traditional crafts and the tools, clothing and collections families used for everyday life in this waterfront neighborhood, 1695 through 1954 when the site was saved from urban renewal.
Explore heritage gardens, historic buildings and crafts, preservation programs, hands-on activities, the stories told by costumed role-players, traditional crafts and the changing exhibits that offer hours of fun and discovery.
