The museum was closed due to COVID. However we were able to walk around and visit the grounds in the heavy rain. We bought ponchos ahead of time and it helped keep us dry. We would have loved to see the place with everyone in character. We will be back at a different time.

Unfortunately all the buildings are closed but you can walk around and see the village and listen a story from volunteers who will greet you at some spots !!! I will definitely come back once everything is open for visitors !!!!

We knew going into Strawbery Banke Museum we would be unable to go into buildings but we assumed there would have been more people on hand to talk about their place (garden, home, place of business). We saw 2 people - both did an excellent job. One spoke about the victory garden (mainly), roosters there along with trees. Also mentioned the cans they were saving to go into making submarines (2/year is their norm - but that year, 1944, they made 32!) A “16” year old spoke about her aunts home, why it took 4 days to do laundry, trip coming over from England, and family/town life. Both were excellent. Souvenir shop was crowded - no social distancing. Price was a reduced $15/ticket, but not worth it in my opinion. We should have spent our time in Prescott Park Gardens. If you can, wait to visit Strawbery Banke Museum after COVID and get the experience it deserves, you will have a much better experience. Because of our experience, however, I have no desire to go back.

Due to Covid I9 the building interiors were closed. Despite that it was interesting to walk around looking at the exteriors as well as the gardens. There were many different types of fruit trees. The docents were also knowledgeable. In summary Strawberry Banke is similar to a miniature Williamsburg, VA.

Christmas at Strawberry Bank is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I enjoyed our Christmas in New Hampshire and a stroll back in time was great. Thank you all for the Veteran tickets. We are looking at taking another travel assignment in Portsmouth.
