This is a "sleeper" museum with some interesting historical artifacts - such as drafts of the Declaration of Independence, one of the "certified" copies of the signed Declaration. It is also the seat of NH chapter of Society of the Cincinnati (membership is limited to the freedom fighters).
A guided tour, given by one of the docents, makes it a rich experience (10,Noon and 2pm) and you get the chance to visit the Tavern where George Washington was "entertained" (had lunch!).

Even though there's not alot there, the tour guide was impressive. He spoke without notes for over an hour. Particularly fascinating were the insights he gave us about the drafting of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We hope to go back there next year when they annually display their original copies of the Declaraton of Indepedence. For somebody who is interested in Revolutionary War history, this is a must visit!
