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

Great place to let the kids burn off some energy if you are spending a day shopping in N. Conway. Two floors full of toys and spaces for pretend play. They use the term "museum" pretty loosely, it is more like an indoor playground. Cheap, fun way to spend a couple hours and seems like the money goes to support... More

This place is incredible! Both of my boys 5 and 2 loved the two floors of interactive exhibits. They loved the castle room, tractor and jungle room. It was reasonably priced, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Definitely add this to your list of things to do with kids!

Great place for adults and kids. Make sure you experience the weather hut that duplicates the feeling that would have existed during the storm that produced the highest wind speed ever recorded on the planet.

We took our 17 month old grandson to the MWV Children's Museum in July 2014. I don't know who had more fun, the adults or my grandson! There were so many themed rooms with plenty of hands on fun.

I went on a rainy day hoping to spend an hour there. We walked right out because it was clearly geared did toddlers/preschoolers. For little kids this would be great. Dress up areas, pretend play.

Right! We are for very young children! We are a children's museum that is geared for children between birth and 7 years old. We are sorry that you expected us to serve an older population. In our area, there are many supports for older children. We serve younger children to serve a local need and to compliment Story Land and... More

Plenty of rooms with plenty of activities,had to really convince my daughter to leave when it was time. Some items/activities looked like donated home items that needed cleaning.
