The Portsmouth Historical Society converted the former city library to a new “one-stop” central gateway to the historical, cultural and artistic venues of greater Portsmouth and a new exhibition site displaying the art and history of the region.

The building includes seven four-color, 4-by-8-foot information panels on each of Portsmouth’s historic houses, museums, landmarks and performance venues. The side galleries are filled with rotating exhibits, and the center’s theater hosts continuous showings of “Welcome to Historic Portsmouth,” a film on Portsmouth’s 400-year history.

Hours:Open 7 days a week, April 1 thru Dec. 23, 10am to 5pm
