Discover Portsmouth a great resource for visitors and locals.
It's a branch of the Portsmouth Historical Society. It's housed in two historic Federal-style buildings dating back to circa 1810---one was formerly the home of grocer Thomas Morton, the other was first Portsmouth Academy, next home to a Civil War memorial, then Portsmouth's first public library.
Here a visitor can watch a short film on the history of Portsmouth, see the free art exhibits, get tourist information from staff, pick up travel brochures, and browse the museum gift shop/bookstore.
I'm local, and I visit Discover Portsmouth at least three times a year to see the exhibits in the two galleries and to see what's new.
