Free Everyday

The L.L. Lee Scouting Museum preserves the history of Scouting around the world with an emphasis on New England and New Hampshire in particular. Our collections go beyond the organizations of the Boy Scouts of America and include objects from the Girl Scouts of the United States of America, the American Boy Scouts, and many international Scouting organizations. While we have many hard to find objects, our goal is to inspire youth to understand our Scouting traditions and values.


The visitor is greeted with a display of objects explaining the role of Baden-Powell in the start and early years of Scouting. Exhibits around the museum describe the development of the Boy Scouts of America, the Cub Scout program, the National Jamborees of the BSA from 1935 to 2017, the history of the Girl Scouts, International Scouting including World Jamborees, and a fine collection of Scouts on Stamps. There is also a special exhibit of the 50 years of the Lee Scouting Museum.

Entry to the museum is free of charge.
