“A great place to spend the morning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I took my son here while my wife was taking a baking class at King Arthur. I just stumbled upon the museum while we were in Norwich, and was pleasantly surprised. My son loved running around, looking at the interactive exhibits.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Clean, beautiful, and fun! We took our 3,6, and 8 year olds here for the first time and they all lived it. The atmosphere is full of New England charm with plenty to see and do. The kids learned a lot with out realizing it because they were having so much fun touching, seeing and playing with everything

This museum is a blast for kids and adults alike. The exhibits here are very hands on and interactive. Make sure to check out the exhibit on sound and hearing located outside, it's a fun way to play with your senses. The staff here are also very helpful and informative. Overall, definitely check this Museum out you will not be disappointed.

“Everyone in the family will love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My friend and I took my 2 grandchildren (ages 5 & 2.5) and we had a great time. They loved it and so did we. We went in the afternoon on a Friday and it wasn't crowded at all. Kids had plenty of time to play with everything. The outdoor water area is also wonderful. We had a great time playing with the the pin pong balls and floating down the river. And, as we were leaving and walking from the back to the front on the left side of the building a train went by which was a nice end to a wonderful afternoon. Everyone of all ages will enjoy this place. Well worth the drive from St. Johnsbury!
