Board Meetings open to public are held the second Tuesdays of each month starting at 6:45 pm at the Museum May-October, and at the Hampton Falls Free Public Library behind the Town Hall on Drinkwater Road.


We rent our museum space from the town of Hampton Falls. It is located across from the town hall in a former baptist church that was purchased by a private citizen and donated to the town to serve as a library, which it did until early in the 21st century when it became the home of the Historical Society, which began with it's founding in 1985.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
