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.

I went to the adult night (Montshire Unleashed) and it was very cool! I had a good time.. I can only imagine it must be even more fun for kids.

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.

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.
