On Thursday, April 4, the American Independence Museum in Exeter will host Revolutionary Story Time!, an enrichment program that brings children, ages 3 to 5, and their families onto its one-acre campus for free entertainment.

“Our costumed re-enactor tells stories and sings songs–it’s a program that often sees some older kids, too,” said the museum’s Victoria Su.

After the 30+ minute program, parent-supervised playtime includes , imaginary play, colonial games, and period dress-up.

The program takes place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Folsom Tavern, 164 Water Street in Exeter, NH. Due to the historical nature of the Tavern, strollers are not encouraged, as the building is not handicapped accessible. Reservations are accepted but not required. 

“We want families to see our space as theirs,” added Su. “Revolutionary Story Time! is a great gateway into the museum.”

Revolutionary Story Time! takes place the first Thursday of each month through December. Home to a world-class collection of 3,000 historic artifacts, the museum welcomes more than 5,000 visitors annually and distinguishes itself with educational school programs and events that make history fun and relevant.
