    We were stuck as it was raining and had to cancel a day on the lake . This was our saving grace . Teenagers not happy about going and in fairness a lot of little kids . But we had a great afternoon . ...  more »

    Perfect science museum for my children ages 8 & 6. They loved every section of the museum including outdoor waterplay.  more »

    Lots of hands on activities for both children and adults. We are impressed with what it offers in such relatively small building!  more »

    Nice museum, very family oriented. The outdoor exhibits were fun and we enjoyed at least one of the nature trails and wished we had more time to see the other trails. Worth the time to visit and would go back again.

    The Montshire is an amazing year round treat for both kids and parents alike, from the hands on exhibits to the outside water area, there is so much to do and see for all ages. It is a 5 minute commute to downtown Hanover and Dartmouth college, so after an afternoon of fun and education there is still plenty to do as well as plenty of local eats.... make a day of it....

    Always remembered this place being awesome as a kid... coming as an adult with my 3 year old it seems to be even better than I remember.

    Very interactive, very educational. Good for kids and adults. Can't wait to use the trails! Lookout tower is beautiful.
