We took our grand daughters there on a rainy summer afternoon and had a wonderful adventure. Lots of hands on activities. Small but very interesting.

Whenever our "littler friends" come to visit they ask to go to The Montshire. I love it too. The ant colony, the bees, the bubble makers, the fish, turtles and other exhibits appeal to all ages. It's a wonderful place to take the kids in the summer with all of the outside water activities. One of the best in the Upper Valley of Vt. and NH.

We have been members here for several years. It is great place to take kids on cold, rainy days. There is always plenty to see and do for 2-3 hours inside. On summer days there is a lovely trail system by the river. Our very favorite thing is the artificial river/water feature that us open in the summer. It is worth the visit alone-- bring swimsuits for the kids!

We have loved the Montshire since our son was small. They have exhibits and hands on displays for all ages. A great place to take visiting family and friends too.

This is a great place to visit with kids of all ages. My daughter loved it and would have spent the entire day in 'bubble area'. I've honestly never visited a museum so geared towards kids of all ages. My only regret is that we visited on a cold, cold day in January and it turns out they have all kinds of outdoor exhibits and trails in summer. I'm definitely looking forward to going back during a warmer season.
