Museum Move

Welcome to the Lee Scouting Museum...home to one of the finest displays of Scouting history in the world! Located at Camp Carpenter in Manchester, NH, the museum was founded in 1969 and is owned and operated by the Daniel Webster Council, BSA.

The Lawrence L. Lee Scouting Museum/Max I Silber Scouting Library represents an exciting, unique, and colorful repository for an exceedingly large collection of Boy Scout historical artifacts and an exceptional Scouting Library. Objects relating to Scouting in New Hampshire, New England, the United States, and the World are on display for all ages to come and enjoy. We hope you will come and visit us!

Our Mission

The mission of the Lawrence L. Lee Scouting Museum and Max I. Silber Scouting Library is to preserve Scouting's heritage and inspire youth about Scouting traditions and values through an interactive and educational structure.  The Museum will collect, preserve, and display Scouting artifacts and publications; conduct research; provide educational materials and events; and educate, enrich, and inspire youth and the general public with the ideals represented by the Scouting Movement.
