12,000 Years of Thanksgiving Traditions – 90-Minute Guided Tour @ Strawbery Banke Museum | Portsmouth | New Hampshire | United States

November visitors to Portsmouth can trace the evolution of Thanksgiving from traditional celebrations of the Abenaki people to today’s family feast and homecoming at Strawbery Banke Museum, the 10-acre outdoor living history museum.

This 90-minute, fast-paced,  multi-sensory program, explains how Thanksgiving transcended time, place and culture to become the uniquely American holiday celebrated today. Participants in the tour meet costumed roleplayers and explore homes from three centuries. In small groups guided by a museum educator, find the common themes of this holiday over three hundred years: charity, survival, gratitude, national identity, and the celebration of family and community.

Cost: Children (ages 5-17), $10; adults, $15; children (under 5), veterans/military/military families, Strawbery Banke members, FREE
