Strawbery Banke Museum

Portsmouth, NH
United States

Strawbery Banke Museum, in the heart of historic downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is a 10-acre outdoor history museum dedicated to bringing 400+ years of American history to life. Strawbery Banke Museum tells the story of the neighborhood called Puddle Dock, surrounding the tidal inlet. This neighborhood grew from seasonal hunting and fishing grounds of Indigenous Abenaki people to a wilderness outpost in the late 1600s and through cycles of maritime prosperity to become a multi-cultural "neighborhood of newcomers."  The museum is known for its first-person historical roleplayers, period gardens and landscapes, making history relevant to the present day and using the lives of ordinary Americans to tell extraordinary stories.

Program Details

Format

1. This program begins with a brief introduction to Strawbery Banke Museum and to the topic of Colonial life.
2. We then play guess the object and seek and find games to discover how people did everyday things like see in the dark, use the bathroom, keep warm and dress in the past.
3. We look at pictures to see how people got around in the past.
4. Participants then participate in an imaginary stagecoach ride to get them up and moving during the program.
5. The group then watches a short video (3 ½ minutes) to see how people cooked over an open hearth and briefly discusses the ways kids helped around the house.
6. Participants play a game to compare and contrast what school was like in the 18th-century and what school is like today.
7. Time is allowed for questions and answers.
