These 4 Living History Museums in New Hampshire Will Take You Back in Time

New Hampshire is home to plenty of history — undoubtedly you spent a lot of your school years learning about it. But we have to admit that sometimes, sitting in a stuffy classroom, we may not have absorbed all of the facts. And going to a regular museum, with things tucked away in cases, doesn’t necessarily inspire much wonder either. That’s why living history museums are so special – for a few hours, you’re able to step back in time and experience what people who came before you saw, touched, ate, and heard. Here in New Hampshire, we have some great ones — and you’re never too old to learn from them.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
