Interesting Science Center on the Coast

We went on a rainy day, not realizing how much of the experience is outside. My kids enjoyed the inside and the scavenger hunt, but since this is right on the coast would have... read more

We have watched this small science center expand and grow, while preserving the amazing history of the area. Thursday's in July we can enjoy live music in a tent outside. Very nominal fee, food and drinks to purchase . The setting can't be beat. Hopefully the thunderstorms will avoid us

We went on a rainy day, not realizing how much of the experience is outside. My kids enjoyed the inside and the scavenger hunt, but since this is right on the coast would have liked to explore the park and my kids would have enjoyed the playground. Inside is small but unique. Without the outside activities, only takes 2 hours... More

Good for kids (of all ages), can easily spend about 1-2 Hrs here. There is a nice simulator of a ship's bridge that was broken. Kids had a nice time learning about crabs. The staff seemed a little unfriendly.

Awesome hands on experiences with ocean creatures. Interactive, interesting programs with friendly, knowledgeable staff (Amanda T. Is our favorite!) beautiful woodland and seaside trails. Tidal pools and marshland. So many things to do and see. Bring a lunch and blankets...enjoy the playground and picnic area. Odiorne State Park is a gem!

The Seacoast Science Center is located at Odiorne State Park. T There is an extra admission price for the Science Center. The kids will really like it. There is also a gift shop, which by the way you can visit without an admission fee. They also have hands on exhibits for the kids and may I say, "The young at... More

The seacoast science center is a top notch mini (mini) version of the Boston aquarium, and is set on one of the most scenic pieces of land in New Hampshire. A small peninsula offering walkways along the ocean, bike paths in the woods, a play ground, picnic areas and the fun and education of the Science center. One of our... More

This is such a great place to bring your children and grandchildren. We wanted too spend the day with my grandson, so this was one of the stops! What a great decision to do so. With many inside exhibits and interactive displays, we were busy enjoying each one. The parking is easy. Access is great to the building, and there... More
