Saw a very good 12-min. video about the area's history, & an excellent exhibit of art on 2 floors. Took their free walking tour (1 hour), which was so well done, & very informative. Highly recommend!

There are lots of friendly people to help you and lots of information about things to do. Great art gallery here too, as well as nice museum gift shop. Close to main shopping area/restaurants.

The tour guide (Jeff Thomson) was interested, interesting, knowledgeable, and entertaining. The city is interesting and was important in colonial times.

Downtown Portsmouth NH is AWESOME! The most restaurants/things to do packed into the tiniest space ever and I loved it. HOWEVER, the parking fees are despicable and the evil city officials ONLY care about giving you a parking ticket/charging 25 cents for only 8 minutes!!!!!!!!!!...More

The video gives a great overview of the town. The walking tours bring that history to life. Discover Portsmouth has rotating exhibits that are both interesting and culturally centered.
