Plymouth State University's Museum of the White Mountains on Highland Street in Plymouth is part of "The Portsmouth to Plymouth Museum Trail."

PLYMOUTH, N.H. Plymouth State University’s Museum of the White Mountains (MWM) is proud to announce their collaboration with 14 other New Hampshire museums to form a consortium called “Experience New Hampshire Heritage: The Portsmouth to Plymouth Museum Trail”. By taking the Trail, visitors will encounter the authentic New Hampshire experience in diverse museums, historic sites and homes. Director Catherine Amidon said the Trail is a great idea that she hopes will open up new educational opportunities.

“This is a great way to explore a variety of historic and cultural sites,” Amidon said. “Touring in the countryside can reveal more of New Hampshire life than is experienced on the interstate highways.”

Among the highlights to be explored on the Trail are an intact Shaker village, two historic farms, a Cold War era submarine, vintage motor boats, a WWII era Pershing tank, a restored knitting mill, and The Museum of the White Mountains, which immerses visitors in the cultural and environment legacy of the region.

To learn more about the Trail, a full-color brochure is available at any of the participating museums or at select New Hampshire Rest Areas.  Included in the brochure is a location map that allows visitors to plan their trips. The Portsmouth to Plymouth Museum Trail sites can be explored in a day, weekend, or even week-long vacation.

The Trail members are (south to north): Strawbery Banke Museum, Portsmouth; Albacore Park Museum, Portsmouth; American Independence Museum, Exeter; Millyard Museum, Manchester; Woodman Museum, Dover; New Hampshire Farm Museum, Milton; Canterbury Shaker Village, Canterbury; Belknap Mill Society, Laconia; Clark House Museum, Wolfeboro; Libby Museum, Wolfeboro; New Hampshire Boat Museum, Wolfeboro; Wright Museum of WWII History, Wolfeboro; Castle in the Clouds, Moultonborough; Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm, Tamworth and The Museum of the White Mountains, Plymouth.
