During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. The Libby Museum, Wolfeboro
Built in 1912 by a quirky dentist who was also an inventor, a naturalist, a writer, and State Representative, the Libby Museum houses a wide-ranging collection ranging from moths and taxidermied animals to old-fashioned farming implements. It's currently closed for renovation, but will reopen in summer 2018. Check it out at 755 N Main St, Wolfeboro, NH 03894.
2. Clark's Florence Murray Museum, Lincoln
This weird little museum at the famous Clark's Trading Post has a strange collection of antique memorabilia, and even a stuffed two-headed calf. Check it out inside Clark's Trading Post, at 110 Daniel Webster Hwy, Lincoln, NH.
3. New Hampshire Telephone Museum, Warner
Telephones are a weird thing to collect, and a telephone museum might seem hopelessly quaint in today's day and age, but this little spot is surprisingly fascinating and relevant. Check it out at 1 Depot Street, Warner, NH 03278.
4. America's Credit Union Museum, Manchester
Talk about a specific focus for a museum! Dive into the history of credit unions here though, and you'll find that they've played a surprisingly important role in helping Americans achieve financial success. Nevertheless, it's definitely not for everyone. If you can't get enough financial history, check it out at 418 Notre Dame Ave # 420, Manchester, NH 03102.
5. Woodman Museum, Dover
There's no denying that the Woodman Museum is a little weird - after all, it's best known for having a stuffed polar bear. Even so, this quirky collection of artifacts from New Hampshire's history is captivating and definitely worth a visit. Check it out at Woodman Museum182 Central Avenue Dover, NH 03820.
