What is there to do?

The New Hampshire Historical Society is an independent museum that preserves and showcases the rich history of New Hampshire, so are you ready to learn all about how fascinating this New England state's past is?

One of the long term exhibitions at the museum is Discovering New Hampshire. Kids can gain an understanding of the state's people, places and events through the collection of photographs, objects and documents that you can't see anywhere else.

Have you ever seen an Abenaki dugout canoe, or even wondered what an early snowmobile looks like? 

Often the exhibits at the museum change frequently, so you can always go back and visit.

One example of a changing exhibit is Sign of the Times, which explores how signs guide us through daily lives, and even serve as a window to the past. The New Hampshire Historical Society collected signs over the past century, revealing what that tells them about how the region changed over time.

A great way to explore the museum's exhibits and collections is to join one of the free guided gallery tours, which happen twice a month at select times. If your kids are ones to ask a lot of questions, why not visit at a time when there is someone to answer them all!

History really does come to life at the New Hampshire Historical Society, so are you ready to explore just how fascinating the past really is?
