They can run out of parking spaces and if they do they close the gate and you may have to leave for a while.

Beautiful spot on the Merrimack River. Great educational place - fun for kids and parents! Check out their calendar to see events held weekly.

I live locally and decided to stop in one day with a 6yr old boy that I was watching for the day. The touch and feel tank was not open and when we asked the very bored looking, just sitting there reading a book why it was closed she said, I don't feel like doing it today. Hmm, isn't that your job? The rest of the center is interesting and it has a cute gift shop,but, I almost had to beg the women to let us buy something. I do not know if she is a paid employee or a volunteer but either way she really wrecked what could have been a fun experience.

This center is pro active on all enviromental issues. If you have never used a spotting scope -head up stair to the observation area and get into birding. The coffee is good and inexpensive. Art is wonderful, shopping at the store is fabulous. What else do you need? Butterfly garden out front.

Great place to go for the day, lots of educators working at every level of curiosity, even with kids. Great bird watching place, lots of rarae sitings. Day trips out with educators, wonderful experience. One man named Harvey P was the best teacher ever!!!!!
