The Tuck Museum, named for its main benefactor Edward Tuck, opened as a single building in 1925. Since then the museum has expanded into five special interest museums - the main hall, farm museum, firefighting museum, beach cottage and schoolhouse - all amply illustrating Hampton's past as a classic New England town, farming and fishing community, and seaside resort.
The museum is operated by the private, non-profit Hampton Historical Society, and is located at 40 Park Avenue, Hampton, New Hampshire, on the historic meeting house green.
Hours are Sunday-Wednesday-Friday, 1-4 p.m. or by special appointment.
Contact us at 929-0781 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visitors, volunteers, and new members are always welcome!
In 2015 the Hampton Historical Society expanded to an offsite location to house its collections and support research-related activities.
