Located in historic Exeter which was the original capitol of New Hampshire, the American Independence Museum features stories of the brave men and women who overcame their uncertainties about freedom from Great Britain and established our country. Among the museum’s permanent collection of documents chronicling the nation’s founding are an original Dunlap Broadside of the Declaration of Independence and early drafts of the U.S. Constitution. You can view these fascinating documents throughout their open season and learn the story behind them, too. Permanent collections include American furnishings, ceramics, silver, textiles and military ephemera.
