If the price was half of what it is, that would have made this a 5-star review. The admission cost is $14 per child (even for 4 year olds) and $16 per adult. So for a family of 5 it is quite an investment. If you live nearby and come here a lot, you are probably better off with an annual membership.
The location is really convenient - it is right off I-91 and a mile or two from Hanover NH which is the home of Dartmouth Univ and has a great little main street with places to eat and shop (we stopped at a diner on main street for lunch before heading to the museum).
The museum has an indoor section that is great - lots of cool science stuff for kids of all ages - much of it with a "hands on" element. The outdoor part is more geared to smaller kids and frankly didn't seem well maintained - a number of the water features werent working great when we visited. Also, there isn't much shade if you go on a sunny day.
There are also some very mild hiking trails around the property - we didn't partake in those. There are vending machines on the property, but otherwise no cafe or food options.
