The town of Hampton has a great collection stored here. So many donations from so many people with deep ties and roots to the town make up an astonishing and historic museum filled with artifacts. Don't miss out on the collection from the Hampton Fire Department. It's worth the time to stop in and tour.

If you're looking for an interesting way to spend some time, check out the TUCK Museum in Hampton, NH. Although tiny, it offered a learning experience about how Hampton started. There are five (5) buildings, each having a unique story of the history of Hampton. Ellie is the Guide. Her wealth of knowledge and pride in her position made the... More

Lovely local museum, outstandingly well maintained, interesting exhibits centered around the history of the town and the area, lively insights into the everyday life of the people back in the days, and lots of stories, told well by the friendly museum staff. When we were planning the day in the morning we thought we might be staying at the museum... More

A wonderful history lesson of Hampton NH! We enjoyed everything about our visit today from the history of Hampton beach and early Hampton industries to the old school house to the 1930's beach cottage , the historic barn filled with antique tools and the firefighters exhibit. The volunteers were extremely kind, friendly and knowledgable!

The buildings are open Sun/Wed/Fri from 1 to 4 for tours, but the grounds are open every day to check out the many buildings and get some great photos. I had a wonderful lady give me an excellent tour, she covered all... More

Both visitors and locals should be sure to visit this professionally developed and locally staffed historical museum. There is something for everyone here, including a restored barn, a school house, a 1950's beach cottage, and tons of early American history as Hampton was one of the first towns settled in the northeast. It even has its very own witch, Goody... More
