The Tuck Museum building is the major building in the Tuck Museum complex. Life in early Hampton, the development of Hampton Beach, and Hampton military history are the subjects of some of the permanent exhibits. Changing displays illustrate other aspects of Hampton’s history.
The museum also contains a small library with information on Hampton genealogy, NH town histories, town and school annual reports, photographs, and post cards. There is a small gift area where postcards, historical publications, and souvenirs may be purchased.
The mission of the Hampton Historical Society is to increase public knowledge and understanding of the history and cultural heritage of the town of Hampton, New Hampshire from its earliest inhabitants to the present generation. We will communicate that history through an active museum, educational programs, and a resource library.
Long known locally as the Hampton Historical Society, the society was actually incorporated in 1925 as the Meeting House Green Memorial Association to honor the original settlers of Hampton. A descendant of one of those families, Edward Tuck, generously donated funds to purchase a house on the site of the original meeting house green. The land surrounding the house was laid out as a park, and the house was turned into a small museum, appropriately named the Tuck Museum.
