  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Great place to have fun. It has a lot of activities. And has a great view.
  • Very interactive, very educational. Good for kids and adults. Can't wait to use the trails! Lookout tower is beautiful.
