Created by the New Hampshire Historical Society, the 603 History Hunt is one of several experiential learning opportunities on the New Hampshire Heritage Museum Trail that invite exploration of history in fun and creative ways.

“Everyone can learn more about the people, places, and events that make New Hampshire special while spending time traveling around the state completing challenges,” said Jenn Walton, assistant director of education and public programs.

Some challenges can be completed from anywhere in the state while others are found in a specific region or location within New Hampshire. Examples of challenges include asking players to film a video, take a photograph, answer a trivia question, or scan a QR code. Players earn points and win prizes, accordingly.

“The Society has been wanting to do a statewide scavenger hunt for several years now, and our 200th anniversary was the perfect opportunity to put our plan into motion,” added Walton.

Tuesdays on the Terrace


If walking is more your speed, the American Independence Museum (AIM) in Exeter invites visitors to walk along the boardwalk by Exeter River in Robert H. Stewart Waterfront Park for Storywalk. Part of a nationwide movement and literacy boosting project, Storywalk places an illustrated children’s book, taken apart and displayed page by page, along the boardwalk.

“We select books that share the story of the 18th century and the American Revolution,” said Sarah Jaworski, program manager. “Our goal is to teach civics and inspire civic engagement.”

In July and August, the selected book is “Free for You and Me: What Our First Amendment Means.” “The book is wonderful in teaching children about the five liberties protected by the First Amendment,” added Jaworski.

Robert H. Stewart Waterfront Park is located on the point of the Exeter River in downtown Exeter. Storywalk takes place through October. To learn more about AIM, or other programming for kids, visit independencemuseum.org.

In addition to the New Hampshire Historical Society and AIM, member institutions on the New Hampshire Heritage Museum Trail are located in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region, Merrimack Valley, and Seacoast.
