We are thrilled to announce the Opening Day for the 2020 Season will be Wednesday July 1, 2020.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions-
Tour reservations are required, and can be made online at www.woodmanmuseum.org (via EVENTBRITE) or by calling 603-742-1038.
We will offer five 90-minute tours per day, Wednesday-Sunday (except we will be closed July 4 & 5th for the holiday), at 10am, 11am, 1pm. 2pm, and 3pm to allow for cleaning between tours. There will only be one tour offered per time slot, and no more than 10 people per tour group. Cost is a flat rate $10 per person (the senior discount rate) and there are no fees to order online.
As always, Members of the Woodman Museum are FREE, but you will still need to register for a date and time online or by phone. If members are bringing guests, register for the guests only (Ten, or less total in group including members) and members will just show their member card when they arrive with their guests.
Again, each group tour will be 90 minutes in duration, led at a distance by a Museum Docent, and will visit multiple buildings on our campus. The usual docent narration will be replaced, for now, by video narration at points throughout the Museum, but your Docent will be available to answer questions. To fully enjoy the tour, each visitor should possess the ability to climb several sets of circa 1800's staircases, but the main floors of two buildings are handicapped accessible and available to all. Please keep your ticket, as it is good for one free admission, for a return visit, during the 2020 season.
What is New at the Woodman- In the Fosters Gallery we have a season long exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Woman’s Suffrage Movement. Learn about local Dover, NH Suffragette Marilla Ricker, and other women from around the State that contributed to the 19th Amendment to the Constitution allowing women the right to vote.
In our Military History area, see the new room dedicated to honoring Vietnam and Korean War Veterans, and in the WWI & WWII area, certain artifacts have been brought out of storage and put on display for the first time in many years as part of our rotating exhibits.
Finally, due to a very generous donation from the Tasker Family of Dover (Tasker Funeral Home), come visit the 1880’s era Funeral Hearse Coach shed, a new and amazing permanent exhibit, and much, much more.
For your health and safety as well as for the health and safety of our volunteers All Visitors will be required to wear a mask. If you do not have a mask the Museum will provide one for you.
