Fun place but work on those bathrooms!

The children's museum is right on the main street of N. Conway. They have a number of rooms where kids can dress up, pretend play with various props, work machines, cuddle stuffed animals, and run around some. It's not like a big city museum, but it will keep kids occupied for a few hours, and they appear to enjoy it.

This is now our second trip to the museum while on vacation in NH. We were here 3 years ago when it was just our daughter and we were excited to go back with her and now our son. There have been some add on's since our last visit and they are all great. Our kids had a blast and... More

We stopped by this museum on our way home from Story Land. We ended up getting a season pass since it would pay for itself in 2 visits. We went on a Sunday and it was pretty empty. I think for at least half the time we were the only people. Our stay was about 2 hrs but I think... More

We went here on a rainy day, and perhaps that wasn't the best idea as everyone else had their children here, too, maxing out the capacity of the building at about 160. There were plenty of individual rooms to play in on two floors, all with their own themes (legos, dress up, musical instruments, trains, etc.), and the wall murals... More

This place is sweet and cute. The staff is friendly. There's a lot of hands-on fun for the little ones. I would recommend it for ages 2-5. We stayed about 2 hours and my 3 year old saw everything. He really enjoyed himself. I loved that it was low-key and completely child friendly.

We took our almost three year old grandson here and it was a hit! Lots to explore and experience. Best for toddlers to kindergarten age group, in my opinion. Nice staff. We paid $22.50 for three of us. Thought it was a bit high priced.

It's too bad that their website doesn't make it clear that they really are only appropriate for up to ages 5 or 6. There isn't anything here that would appeal to children over those ages. They do have a lot of rooms, maybe the owners should think about turning the downstairs into an area that older children could enjoy? For... More

Your review was very helpful! I reviewed our website and I think we could do a better job highlighting how we are different from most children's museums. We focus on very young learners. Our focus is up to age 7 years old. After age 8, the needs of learners and how they play changes. You saw that in our children's... More

Words little people never get to hear - what a wonderful spot for kids I'd say six and under. Filled with imaginative stations - that secretely teach kids at the same time - kids learn through play and this little children's museum is a must stop if you have little ones on vacation in North Conway. Clearly supported by it's... More

With the freezing below zero weather this winter, we were all feeling so cooped up in the house! We researched indoor places for young children and decided to try this out. It was about a 1 hour drive from us, but definitely worth it. Our almost two year old LOVED this place. She had such a great time running around... More
