Today the American Independence Museum is a place for the study, research, education and interpretation of the American Revolution and of the role that New Hampshire, Exeter, and the Gilman family played in the founding of the new republic.

The museum's permanent collection contains an original broadside of the Declaration of Independence and early drafts of the U.S. Constitution.
