“A great historical place”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

I went to the American Independance Museum during annual festival in Exeter NH in July. Then is when they show a Dunlap Broadside of the Declaration of Independence and early drafts of the U.S. Constitution. It is a great time to visit as there are many activities going on during the festival,but if you can't make it at that time just visit the museum and have a wonderful time at early American History. Great take!

Reviewed 24 August 2012

Interesting museum; small. Worth including in a visit to Exeter - we took a docent tour and learned a lot. Easy parking.

They actually have an original copy of the Constitution and host an amazing Revolutionary War festival each July.

“unique american history”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

They have some cool finds for a little museum, but Exeter was the capital during the American Revolution. Find some coupons as it is a little overpriced I think
