Cultural Assets, Historical Assets, Fine Arts, Natural Resources, and Municipal Recreation

This section is designed to familiarize you with Portsmouth's strongest assets: its people, natural beauty, and unique cultural assets. This page is just a starting point. We encourage you to browse the web sites of all of our non-profit arts and culture organizations.

Portsmouth's pride in its history, art and culture is evident in this thoughtful Art and Culture Plan developed by the Mayor's Blue Ribbon Committee on Arts and Culture. The plan recognizes the local economic impact of those who visit the City's arts and culture venues and the role its visual and performance arts play in the City's vitality.
