Come along an adventure, located in the Gookin House at 43 Atkinson on the historic grounds of Strawbery Banke Museum.


Mr. Pickwick invites you to step aboard this journey to the past and into the life of the American revolutionaries, explorers, and pioneers!

Stocked with fine locally purveyed goods, as well as those from ports 'round the world, Pickwick's at the Banke offers a wide selection of provisions, tablewares, toys, clothing, decor, and more!

Every Saturday at 2:00 pm in the Children’s Loft!

Join us as we share the classic children’s stories we love with readers of all ages, free of charge!

Recommended for ages 3-8. Must be accompanied by an adult. Space permitting.
