Discovering New Hampshire

From an Abenaki dugout canoe to an early snowmobile, the exhibition Discovering New Hampshire shares the history of New Hampshire's people, places, and events through objects, photographs, and documents you can't see anywhere else.

Revealing Relationships: Portraits of New Hampshire Friends and Family

Every portrait has within it stories about the life of the sitter, the artist, and the time it was painted. Portraits can also speak to the sitter's relationship with friends and family. You are invited to take a closer look at the more than 32 portraits on view at the Society.

White Mountains in the Parlor: The Art of Bringing Nature Indoors

During the 1800s the natural wonders of the White Mountains attracted artists, photographers, writers, tourists, and entrepreneurs to New Hampshire. The 36 landscape paintings featured in this exhibition reveal stories of White Mountain scenery, of the artists who depicted it, and of the people who owned and cherished these paintings.
