The weekend we were there it open so we were able to view the fish going throught the ladder. Great for families with younger children.

Took my five-year old grandson there for one of their educational events, he totally loved it. Trained staff run programs geared to different ages to teach conservation and educate about wildlife. A tank of baby salmon greets visitors in the foyer and other wildlife reside there as well, even a Timber rattlesnake!

I had a little spare time after a meeting...what to do in Manchester? The reviews of the art museum said it was $10 to get in, and the Milyard Musuem closed at 4. So off to the fish. First of all, its confusing. You park, and see a little sign for portage on one side, and a uninviting building on... More

The Amoskeag Fishway is an excellent thing to do in Manchester, NH. The fish ladder on the Merrimack River has viewing windows where you can watch fish work their way up the ladder. On our visit we saw a number of very large carp and some smaller fish. The learning center has some displays with turtles, toads, an eel, fish... More

Went on a school field trip with my daughter. The instructor was knowledgeable, but the facilities were lacking. Set well back from the parking area, we finally located the museum. A very modest facility with not much to offer. Wouldn't recommend it.

The Fishways put on a Falcon Fest this year and it was so great! They had a rescued for us to see and a speaker to tell us all about the bird. We could also walk around the fishways and see the fish ladder. Down the road, there was a station set up to view the falcon that lives in... More

Fascinating! A window under the river. Great for families and while you're here, visit the SEE Center just down the road.
