The Loon Center of New Hampshire is a true gem of an "attraction." Admission is free. The exhibits about loons are very informative and they are designed with kids in mind. There are also videos about loons that run upon request, nature trails, and a gift shop. Our kids enjoyed building the mock loon's nest. The gift shop is my... More

We have always been fascinated with Loons and wanted to learn more about them. The Loon Center provided a wealth information on the topic. We didn't realize that an adult male Loon weighs in at 16 lbs. and is as large as a Canada Goose. The live up to 30 years as well.

We are wild about loons and found this place to be a wonderful resource for both information and all loon-related products.

Visited by chance. What an amazing place. We knew not a lot about Loons before our visit. But learnt so much from the video, static displays and information boards. We did the loon walk. But sadly no loons to be seen. Bit late in the season for them. But the walk is nice. We'll sign posted and lots of flora... More

Stopped off here between hotels, expecting just a quick visit but ended up being here for half a day. Very good video (especially for those of us who don't know anything about loons before arriving), static displays and a fair-sized trail through woodland to the lakeside - best to wear stout shoes for this. Didn't see any real loons during... More

If you ever wanted to know all you could grasp about loons in one day or less, this is the place to be. They offer mini seminars describing the loon's habitat, how long it takes to raise a chick, and other fascinating facts about loons - all along while hearing their distinct "wail'. A great part about the center is... More
