About the Montshire
Fog at the MontshireThe Montshire Museum of Science is a hands-on museum located in Norwich, Vermont, offering dozens of exciting exhibits relating to the natural and physical sciences, ecology, and technology. The building is located on a 110-acre site near the Connecticut River, and the Museums' outdoor environment is a large part of the visitor experience. Science Park is a two-acre exhibit area in a beautiful, park-like setting. Also outside is a network of easy-to-moderate walking trails for visitors of all ages and fitness levels.
Best. Place. For. Kids. My son absolutely loves this place! Sooo much to do. Outside there is a water park they is not only fun, but very educational. Pleanty of trails and other outside exhibits accentuate the experience. Indoors there is 3 floors of some very clever exhibits. Ranging from an indoor beehive, to high tech sound exhibits most of which are hands on. Topping it off is a gift shop that is reasonably priced.
Great museum! Everything is very hands. Get indoor and outdoor activities. Plenty to do indoors on colder days. My 4 year old (and I) love it!
My daughter loves the Montshire, and my husband and I like it too. Our membership has paid for itself several times. The new toy exhibit upstairs was a big hit, and in the summer months the outside splash pad is excellent. We plan on renewing!
Children, Parents and Grandparents alike had a wonderful time. I have been a few times with my family and enjoyed how the exhibits change. It's a great place to explore science with with my children and the hands on exhibits are exceptional. The activities are well thought out, educational and fun. Every employee I have interacted with has been kind, knowledgeable and helpful.
I volunteer here, and I love the Montshire. It has a really fun, child friendly atmosphere and most of the exhibits are hands on. The Discovery Lab on the second floor is another great place for kids and parents to get some hands on experience with a science activity!
