During your journey, make a stop at Strawbery Banke Museum which is an authentic 10-acre outdoor history museum dedicated to bringing 300+ years of American history to life. The Museum is a place for children, adults, multigenerational families and groups to gather and explore eight heritage gardens, 32 historic buildings and traditional crafts, preservation programs, hands-on activities, the stories told by costumed role-players and the changing exhibits that offer hours of fun and discovery. The Museum’s restored buildings and open space invite visitors to immerse themselves in the past, using objects from the museum’s collection of 30,000 artifacts, and the histories of the families who lived and worked in the Puddle Dock neighborhood.
