The Strawberry Banke Museum is an obvious stop in Portsmouth but we needed a little help in finding our way around this great walking city. Discover Portsmouth is an excellent place to begin your visit. It's located right across from the John Paul Jones House in the historic part of town. In fact admission to the John Paul Jones House is included in your fee to see the exhibit here. There was a helpful video which gave you an introduction to Portsmouth past and an exhibit of carved eagles when we visited. Most importantly the volunteers were very knowledgeable and willing to share their suggestions as to what to see. When we mentioned that we were heading into Maine after Portsmouth, the lady at the desk suggest a beautiful drive along Route 103 to a fort where we could look back at Portsmouth.
