Education Programs and Resources

The New Hampshire Historical Society provides a variety of engaging and enjoyable learning experiences for children and adults. Offerings include school programs and guided tours of exhibitions at the Society's historic building in Concord, artifact-based traveling programs available for presentation at your location, history courses, lectures, and workshops.

In 2019 the Society launched a major new educational resource called Moose on the Loose, a social studies curriculum for Granite State kids, educators, parents, and everyone who enjoys learning about New Hampshire. Moose on the Loose is a key component of the Democracy Project, the Society’s initiative to renew history and civics education in New Hampshire schools.
