Founded in 1991 with the strength and guidance of the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of New Hampshire, the Exeter Community and State of New Hampshire, the American Independence Museum celebrates what it took to create the freedoms that Americans continue to enjoy and strive for today. Located in Exeter, New Hampshire’s Revolutionary War Capital, the Museum serves residents, schoolchildren and area visitors by making our past relevant and fun. We want to encourage people to appreciate all who fought for our freedom and continue to fight for it. We believe we can learn from the past and apply it to the future.
