American Independence Museum

Founded in 1991 with the strength and guidance of the Society of the Cincinnati in 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.

Located in Exeter, New Hampshire’s Revolutionary War Capital, the Museum serves local residents, schoolchildren and area visitors by educating them on New Hampshire’s role in the Revolutionary War and making connections from our past to the present. The American Independence Museum promotes awareness, increases understanding and celebrates the freedoms of American Independence to recognize the many facets of the founding of our Nation, and to encourage and inspire civic engagement today. With a world class collection of objects pertaining to the American Revolution and the founding of our Nation, two beautiful historic structures and a one acre campus in downtown Exeter, and a fleet of volunteers, students, and leaders, the museum is uniquely poised to educate, engage and inspire all who visit. 

The museum offers tours, field trips, children’s summer camps and public programs on-site and off-site for all ages. The American Independence Museum serves over 5,000 visitors on-site a year, making it a destination in the Seacoast region and a primary attraction and economic generator for the town of Exeter.
