  • I have held a family membership at the Montshire for years. Returning there is like coming home to a group of smart educators who want to help people (not just children) understand and enjoy the world...  more »
  • Yes this place is pricey, but also a lot of fun. Many attractions and things to do. When the weather is bad or it's late Fall or Winter the outside things are either closed or very limited. I think it...  more »
  • 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 invest...  more »

  • During our spring break vacation, we stopped there with the kids. Great museum of science! Well organized! Great activities for all! I will probably go back again during summer time to see the outside trails! Keep up the great work!
  • This place is great if you have kids. There is an area for really small kids which is great for tactile learning developing motor skills and socializing. There is a nice variety of live exhibits and interactive exhibits for older kids. The trails outside are great and nice weather. Really great for a small local Science Museum. My ten-month-old loves it here.
  • It is an interesting small science museum, mainly geared too kids under twelve. There are several exhibits and activities for the kids, but the scope is far smaller than the science museums in Boston and Hartford. For us the nicest part was that they lent us snow shoes and we had a very nice walk on snowy trails looking at animal tracks. That alone was with the visit.
  • Had the fortunate experience of doing a "camp-in" here with the Cub Scouts. The program was amazing. We had several hours of fun doing chemistry, astronomy, "hot air balloons," and just exploring the museum. If your Pack is looking for an activity, this is a great destination.
  • The North Country is so lucky to have the Montshire Museum of Science! With wildlife, science experiments, living displays (bees and leaf cutter ants!) and a full water play park in the summer this is the best place to go with kids to entertain them for the day! Highly recommend!
