Review"This past spring we visited this museum and loved it. Strawberry Banke has 42 buildings representing the span from 1695 to 1950. There are houses to tour inside, pretty gardens, and a WWII era grocery store. One of the houses had a demonstration of hearth cooking. The guide, Joe, was super knowledgeable, entertaining and talked about food and cooking in general during colonial times. That was probably my favorite place there. I liked that it was self-guided and we could take as much time as we wanted." – Yelp Review
Review"This museum is a historical little village of what the town was like in the early years of Portsmouth. However, I visited to early in the year and it should be open by Memorial Day." – Trip Advisor Review
