American Independence Museum

About American Independence Museum

Founded in 1991 with the strength and guidance of the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of New Hampshire, the Exeter Community and the State of New Hampshire, the American Independence Museum is a place where all can learn and celebrate what it took to create the freedoms that we as Americans continue to enjoy hundreds of years later.
Today, the Museum is in a unique position to serve residents, schoolchildren and area visitors by making our past relevant and fun so we may ignite a passion in them. We want to encourage people to appreciate all those who fought for our freedom, continue to fight for it, and ultimately become interested and invested in the politics of today.
We believe we can learn from the past and apply it to the future.

“I loved being able to work with the historical collections from the American Revolution. There was a lot of history of Exeter during the time period I discovered.”
