The mission of Portsmouth Historical Society is to, "Champion the history, arts and culture of the Portsmouth Region through acquisitions, preservation, museum exhibitions, programs and publications."
The Society administers two facilities in the west end of the heart of downtown, including:
*Discover Portsmouth (Open April 1 through December 23 daily from 9:30am-5pm)—a large historic structure featuring exhibition galleries, a museum shop, a welcome center, and
*The Historic 1758 John Paul Jones House and Garden, a National Historic Landmark (open Memorial Day through Columbus Day) that was saved from demolition in 1917, and houses exhibitions of the Society’s permanent collections including Portsmouth memorabilia, furniture, textiles and other material culture.

The Portsmouth Historical Society, which celebrated its centennial in 2017, has had a significant and long lasting impact on the local and regional community over the course of the past 100 years. Since 2008, Portsmouth Historical Society has presented several poignant and timely nationally acclaimed exhibitions. In 2016 the exhibitions Illuminating Tarbell, featuring the American impressionist art of Edmund Tarbell, and then Wendy Turner ~ Island Light attracted tens of thousands of local and out-of-state visitors to see the renowned artwork of these past and present artists. In 2017 our program included an exhibition on 400 Years of Furniture in Portsmouth with The New Hampshire Furniture Masters, which was held on the 25th anniversary of the first major book on that subject, and Seacoast Sculptors, from Material to Masterwork featuring the work of three nationally-recognized local sculptors including Michael Stasiuk, Jane Kaufmann, and Sumner Winebaum, with the New Hampshire Potters Guild; each with its own lecture series and associated family and adult programming.
These mission-driven exhibitions raise the level of awareness about our cultural resources, educating both our larger NH public and the city’s many visitors. The Society has made it its ongoing goal to provide access to these high-quality exhibitions of nationally-important and locally-relevant art and artifacts for FREE to the public. The Society firmly believes that accessibility to the beauty and culture that art provides is crucial to increasing a larger scale understanding of the importance of art and culture in daily life. We believe that the inherent beauty in art and material culture can provide light in times of darkness, and that exposure to this material promotes a future generation of Americans who are vested in preserving the arts, history, and culture that define who we are as a society.
