Two-Museum Bus Tour

Once again we are partnering with Portsmouth Naval Shipyard to present a "two Museum" tour.

We will start at Kittery Historical & Naval Museum, then board the bus to the Navy Yard. The bus will do a perimeter tour of the Yard, including a stop at the PNSY Museum. This tour fills up quickly, so reserve your spot today!

You must pre-register for this event by calling 207-439-3080. We need each person's name for registration. Maximum 28 people. Cost is $5.00. A driver's license or US citizen ID is required to board the bus.

Elizabeth C. Jewell will be at the Museum to sign her recently released book "Portsmouth Through Time" and to chat with visitors.

Don't let the name fool you!

This book depicts many seacoast locations in a "then and now" format, including Kittery, the Isles of Shoals, and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

Copies of the book will be for sale in the Museum gift shop. Purchase of the book during the event includes one free admission to the Museum.

We are about Kittery

We seek to create greater awareness of the history of Kittery, its role in American history, and our cultural and maritime heritage. We welcome suggestions for events that are consistent with our mission. Thanks for participating in the Museum!
