  • Gundalow Company
    Gundalow Company likens its namesake to the tractor-trailer rigs of today. Flat-bottomed cargo barges with a single mast, gundalows once sailed down shallow rivers, carrying fish, lumber, bricks, and coal to towns in the Piscataqua region. The company’s mission is to preserve the history of this ship and the maritime life it once facilitated. They are aided in this mission by two vessels. The Captain Edward H. Adams is a historically accurate replica of the Fanny M., the last commercial gundalow. It was helmed by Captain Adams, who was also known for gathering awareness for the health of the Great Bay Estuary. Visitors can hop aboard this permanently docked ship and participate in an array of hands-on educational programs. The Piscataqua, on the other hand, offers on-the-go lessons, as it is US Coast Guard–certified and available for public and private sails. During two-hour tours, passengers travel along six inland rivers, picnicking, helping the crew pull up lobster traps, or searching the water’s surface for a third eye in their reflections.

  • American Independence Museum
    When a Dunlap Broadside of the Declaration of Independence was found in 1985 inside a historic Exeter house, the founders of the American Independence Museum knew they needed a special space to show off the amazing discovery. Today, their dream is manifested in the form of the museum, which is made up of the 18th century Ladd-Gilman House, Folsom Tavern, and an acre of land in downtown Exeter. The history museum is dedicated to the men and women of revolutionary America, from the signers of the Declaration to ordinary families who played large roles in the revolution. Here, visitors can take tours and check out historic documents relating to the birth of America, as well as view early American furnishings and household goods.

  • The Museum of Old Newbury
    Some museums simply tell the history of their subject, but The Museum of Old Newbury actually plays a role in history.

The museum is also home to a research library specializing in local genealogy and a photography collection of more than 14,000 images of a past age. Size: the museum boasts four main areas: the Caleb Cushing House, the Garden, the Carriage House, and the Perkins Engraving Plant, which played a crucial role in the early minting of Massachusetts currency Eye Catcher: the collection of the old Newburyport Marine Society, which includes curiosities and artifacts found all over the world by sailors in the 18th and 19th centuries Permanent Mainstay: guided tours held until 5 p.m. every Wednesday through Sunday explore the history of the home's artwork and relics Don't Miss: the 1870s wall-to-wall carpeting, the gas light fixtures, and the 19th century wallpaper, which aren't era-appropriate replicas?they're the real thing The Building: from 1818 to 1955, three generations of Cushings?some of which were ship-owners, merchants, judges, and diplomats?called this building home

  • Brick Store Museum
    Established: Before 1950 Staff Size: 2?10 people Average Duration of Services: 30?60 minutes Handicap Accessible: Yes Parking: Free street parking Recommended Age Group: All ages Q&A with the Executive Director In his lifetime, William Lord amassed something of a treasure horde, including artwork, furniture, and articles of business. When he died in 1873, he left behind a fortune considered the greatest in Kennebunk, including several pieces of real estate. In 1936, Lord's old general store building came into the possession of his great-granddaughter, Edith Cleaves Barry. She decided to use the building as a museum, exploring the area's history through the lens of her family's story and possessions. The museum quickly grew to occupy other nearby buildings, all dating from between 1810 and 1860, and their architectural elements and antiques became the centerpiece of Brick Store Museum. Today, the museum houses exhibits in six galleries spread throughout the buildings. Many of the exhibits feature interactive elements, and all tell the story of regional history, whether through photography, artwork, artifacts, or ghosts who can talk.
