This summer, we took the kids to the Children’s Museum of NH for the first time. The kids really loved all the exhibits, and we spent several hours exploring and having fun. Here are some of the photos from our visit:
We started with lunch outside the museum at one of the picnic tables, but the museum also offers a nice family friendly eating area inside, complete with wipes to clean up! Here are my two cuties, Ethan of course hamming it up for the camera – he’s a natural, don’t you think?
I was surprised that Olivia had as much fun in the dinosaur dig area as Ethan – but while he was focused on checking out the fossil replicas, Olivia was pretty obsessed with the brushes.
I didn’t get many photos of the big yellow submarine, but the kids loved it – and since it’s right near the entrance/exit, we had to go their twice, of course!
The ‘Music Matrix & Sound Watch’ was my personal favorite exhibit – as the kids touched the different wooden panels on the wall it would play a tone, and a corresponding light on the adjacent wall would light up showing the sound wave. It was really cool, and Mumma was bummed when the kids were ready to move on to the next area of discovery!
By far, Ethan’s most favorite area was on the second floor, where there is an extensive set up of train tables – an entire village worth, complete with painted murals. The attention to detail is amazing – right down to the legs of the tables that are painted brown, like the earth, and include little dinosaur fossils!
This section is in an area for younger children, or those perhaps needing a little quiet time. There’s even a little nursing nook for mamas – it was really well done and thoughtful planned out. Olivia had fun looking at herself in the silly mirror, crawling through a ‘fallen log’ and snugging with Mumma, of course.
If you ever get the chance to go to the Children’s Museum of NH, I highly recommend it. It’s just good fun for the kids, and the adults!
