Albacore Park to break ground on new visitor center

Albacore Park, a National Historic Landmark Site and museum in Portsmouth, is expanding its visitor center.

A ground-breaking ceremony for the project will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10.

Thanks to generous funding provided by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, the Linn Foundation, and an anonymous donor, they are working on a building expansion that will double the size of Albacore Park’s visitor center. “We have been waiting a long time for this development,” said Executive Director Patricia Violette-Adams. “Finally, we will have the space to increase our interpretation of submarine history as well as placing more emphasis on the rich Maritime history of our region.”

The new museum gallery will have revolving exhibits and new technology to enhance the visitor experience.

“This expansion represents the years of hard work and dedication by the Board of Directors, Executive Director, staff and the numerous community colleagues and volunteers,” said PSMA’s Board President Ken Latchaw.

This project has been on the drawing board since 2019, and completion is expected in late fall.
