June 21, 2013 marks the 225th birthday of the US Constitution and – not coincidentally – the 225th birthday of the state of New Hampshire, “the state that made us a nation.” Strawbery Banke Museum invites residents of the state to visit, free of charge, June 15 through 23, and will cap the week-long celebration with a 225th birthday party for the state on June 21.
The Museum will welcome Governor Maggie Hassan and local dignitaries and visitors for complimentary birthday cake, made in the shape of New Hampshire created by Wild Orchid Baking Company of Dover.
At Strawbery Banke, visitors will enjoy 10-acre outdoor history museum with 25 historic buildings and eight gardens, costumed role-players, traditional crafts and hands-on activities for adults, children and families. Admission also includes two special 2013 exhibits, “Tapping Portsmouth: How the Brewing Industry Shaped the City” and “First Nations Diplomacy: The 300th Anniversary of the 1713 Treaty of Portsmouth” between the English Colonials and the Native Americans of coastal Maine and New Hampshire.
NH residents free. $17.50 adults, $10 children 5-17.
