Lots of interactive displays which the kids(11,13,16) had fun trying out. We are big fans of LEGO so the Millworks exhibit was a big draw. It really is amazing. The museum building is party of the original mill. We did not pay for our visit because we are members of another science museum but really enjoyed ourselves.

Hands on fun for children. Best suited for preteens. Went with family that was visiting from South Carolina. Both girls (aged 3 and 5) had a blast exploring the place.

My two boys (ages 6 and 8) and I visited here recently. We had just over an hour before it closed, and I'd say that was about the right amount of time, although I could see us spending another 30 minutes to an hour possibly. I loved how hands on it all is. Definitely a place where kids are encouraged... More

We dropped my wife off at the Merrimack outlets and I brought the kids (3, ages 11, 8, 6) up to the SEE Science Center. The kids had a great time. Yes, some of the 'science' interaction objects were pretty simple, but letting the three kids muck about with things in their own time together made the time pass quickly.... More

My husband and I took our 8 yo second grader here last Sunday morning. I had read several reviews beforehand, so I thought it would be a good fit for a family fun day. After being there I have no idea how some reviewers said they spent 3-5 hours there! We were there for exactly 75 minutes and we saw/touched/interacted... More

I visited for the first time with my Lego-obsessed 4-year-old son and my 10-going-on-16-year-old daughter, as well as my mother. At first glance past the door, I was worried that my daughter would be bored, but she was pretty happy to go around and work the displays on her own while I followed her little brother around. She was a... More

This place is fun, more if you have kids that like to touch things (what kids don't?) There are many things to learn about while you are touching them as there are placards on all items explaining them. Learn about pulleys as you pull yourself up in the air on a chair, play with the plasma ball and all of... More

This is a pretty solid children's science museum. There's not too many inventive exhibits but solid delivery on many old favorites such as pulley chair exhibit, gyro scope chair, moon walk, electricity - shocking exhibit. Good explanations of scientific concepts accompany the exhibits. There is a massive Lego display on the original Mill and surrounding Manchester. Check to see if... More

Parents of children with food allergies BEWARE they allow familes to eat at tables in the exhibits/right next hands on activities. So kids are going to and from exhibits and their peanut butter sandwich or anywhere no designated area at all

We got there at 10am - when they opened. No people. We could do anything. The lego display was very excellent. Different science exhibits. We spent 3 hours here. Great price!
