A step back in time at Strawbery Banke May 11, 2012
We stopped at this place as my boyfriend and I spent a week driving through New England. We had a lot of fun exploring the different time periods of New Hampshire and we spent many hours here. We played old-fashioned games like croquet and graces. You can also visit a grocery store from the 1940s, as well as learn about immigrant life (such as a Eastern-European Jewish home from 1919).

There was also an exhibit on fashion, where there was a historical dress and next to it a modern dress inspired by the historic one.

If you enjoy living museums, you will enjoy this place.

Interesting look into the past Sep 03, 2008
Strawberry Banke is a preserved immigrant community area known as Puddle Dock- providing insight to 400 years of Portsmouth's History! Admission is $15 and a guided tour is possible. You will be walked through several houses and see different period furnishings inside and out. You will alsop be walked through the mayor's house and his wife's greenhouse which is still kept up to this day! It's very interesting and well worth the $15 admission! Not to mention downtown Portsmouth is just a few blocks away and full of neat shops and delicious food!
