We were planning a trip to Boston's children museum. We then figured that our three-year-old might do better at a smaller and closer venue for her first museum trip. This is not a small museum. We were all thoroughly entertained with so many exhibits for younger children. It was a rainy day, so it was a bit crowded. We plan on coming back soon when it might be less crowded. Fun day!

Flag Hill Winery

Reviewed By SPKinVA - Reston, Virginia

New Hampshire's largest winery was a fun experience. The wines were OK. After all, you're in NH. It's also a distillery. You can try 5 samples (total) for $5.00. If you buy a bottle, the tasting is free. I tried 3 wines, gin, and maple liqueur. Some of our party liked the whites (Niagara and Cayuga). Others liked the port. We took a bottle of the maple liqueur home. I wish they had indoor seating. We would've enjoyed having a glass at the winery.

Lindt-sprungli chocolate outlet

Reviewed By HebbieDacker

No visit to this area is complete without a visit to Lindt. The spotless sales area has been redone to include a beverage bar, more sales area, and a cooking/meeting area. Offering the latest flavors and styles of chocolate you can generally score some items that were deemed to be less than perfect. These are sold at a reduced price and are quickly grabbed up by those in the know.
The European candy selection is generally filled with wonderful offerings that aren't always found at all of the retail stores. When you enter the store you are offered a truffle and a smile. Not a bad way to start your shopping experience! The staff take pride in helping you with any special selections you might need and steering you to some of their better deals of the day. This is a very happy place to shop.

Stoneface Brewing

Reviewed By Nate080411 - Nashua, New Hampshire

Going in I already knew I enjoyed Stoneface beer but this was my first trip to their location. They have a clean industrial set up with their own food on site. On a busy day, like when we were there, it can get crowded so you should be prepared to stand and sample your beers. They don't do flights, but the 6 oz pours are essentially samples by themselves so you can order up as many of those as you would like to sample their varieties. They have a nice shop on site for merchandise and canned beer or growlers to go. Overall, while this is outside the Portsmouth central area, you should take the few minutes and drive out to it.

Woodman Institute Museum

Museum campus has four buildings, featuring natural scince,local history,decorative arts, and contemporary art. Considered NH,s most eclectic museum. Yankee magazine award for best small museum in New England. Founded in 1916.

Reviewed By James V

The Woodman Museum is a gem with a surprising array of fine exhibits. Examples include the last saddle President Lincoln rode, fascinating history of world-famous Cochecho prints, and the story of John Wilkes Booth's fiance at the time of his crime. The Garrison House dates from the early 1600s and is worth the visit for that alon.
