Hours & Directions
New Hampshire Historical Society Currently Closed
Given the current health crisis, the New Hampshire Historical Society is closed to the public. The health and safety of our members, visitors, and staff are of paramount importance to us. We will reopen when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please enjoy New Hampshire's history through our website, which presents the Timeline of New Hampshire History, online exhibits, digital and audio versions of Historical New Hampshire, and access to the Society’s collections through the integrated museum and library catalog. Society members can also look forward to a new issue of Historical New Hampshire, with articles on the Cog Railway, the Scots-Irish, and more. It will arrive in members’ mailboxes in early April. We also encourage you to contact staff via our Contact Us form or email. All of us at the Society extend our best wishes for your well-being as we weather this pandemic.
