Whether a display of Remick artifacts, an enhancement for a unique event, or providing a historical perspective on a modern-day topic, the intent of our exhibits is to inform. And perhaps, as a result, each will arouse your curiosity.

WHERE HOME MEETS HARVEST: New England Kitchen Gardens, 1790–1945
This unique exhibit includes both indoor and outdoor components. The outdoor experience consists of Remick's newly-redesigned produce gardens, in which each plot represents a New England kitchen garden in one of three historical eras (1790 to 1830; 1860 to 1900; and 1917 to 1945). Indoors, delve deeper into the history of kitchen gardens through a display of authentic artifacts, archival documents, and photos exploring such topics as native versus introduced crops, food preservation and preparation, early 20th-century school gardens, and more. Learn about the Victory Garden work conducted here nearly a century ago by Marion Remick and the Tamworth Garden Club. And be sure to test your knowledge (and fight food waste!) with an interactive game designed in partnership with the “Eat or Toss” website.

 

  

THE COUNTRY DOCTOR TOUR AT THE CAPTAIN ENOCH REMICK HOUSE

This brief guided tour features the doctors’ authentic 19th- and 20th-century medical tools and equipment, their visitation and treatment areas, and a one-of-a-kind historic apothecary that predates the earliest local pharmacy. CLOSED FOR THE SEASON, reopening in Spring 2020.

The house is open for tours only. Please call 603-323-7591 to arrange for a group tour.)

DOC & MARION’S APARTMENT
Visitors will feel as though they’ve stepped back into the 1950s in Doc and Marion’s Apartment
. Located on the second floor of the Museum Center, visitors may walk through several of the rooms once occupied by Doc and his wife, Marion. Their modest living area includes a formal sitting area and a cozy den, two bedrooms (one now used as a dress-up area), an eat-in kitchen and a formal dining room and a small bathroom. Complete with creaky floors found in old New England houses, and the sounds of the couple’s favorite music and a Red Sox game playing in the background, this exhibit space is a wonderful “I remember when...” or “We used to have...” experience to share with all generations of a group.

LEARN MORE:

> Listen to our WRMR: Remick Museum Radio, our Spotify station, where you can listen to the music Doc and Marion loved.

> In season, visit the Captain Enoch Remick House for a guided tour of Doc’s boyhood home and where he resided in his final years.

> Marion was an avid gardener. During the growing season, visit Marion’s Garden, a peaceful, shaded garden on the street side of the Museum Center Barn. 

 

OUR MEDICINE THROUGH TIME
The Our Medicine Through Time exhibit provides visitors with an overview of the history of medicines, from the time when homemade remedies were a necessity through to the era when the youngest of our namesake country doctors, Doctor Edwin “Doc” Crafts Remick, practiced medicine. This walk-through exhibit includes visits to a pantry, an apothecary, a soda fountain and drug store, and Doc’s “office”, as well as a display of historical medical supplies and equipment.

LEARN MORE:

> We have a thriving Herbal Medicine workshop and activities program and sell many Remick-made herbal products in the Museum Store.

> In season, visit the original doctor’s office shared by both Doctors Remick, located in the stately Captain Enoch Remick House.
