We had a lot of fun. This is great for kids. Lots to learn about plants animals in the white mountains. lots of educational exhibits. Live animals including Bear coyotes deer fox owl etc.. Awesome playground and indoor play area with multiple levels and a spiraling staircase.
Each and every time we visit the center it never ceases to amaze us. At certain locations there is a need for personal interaction with staff providing more information and answering questions. Static exhibits are boring and uninteresting. The animated prehistoric reptiles were stimulating. An impromptu meeting with staffer handling an injured raptor and the information she provided while standing in the rain was exceptional. Please watch your prices!
My Husband and I stopped here on the way home from visiting Mt. Washington, and we were pleasantly surprised! It was very clean and well maintained, and there were a lot of healthy active animals. We did the live animal exhibit trail...I’m pregnant and wanted something nice and easy. We took our time and it took about 2 hours (if you have kids, there’s so much to do with them, like a playground and picnic area). There were many benches, most of it was in the shade, no big hills, and it was very stroller friendly and handicap accessible. It was so educational, and lots of care and thought went into all of the exhibits, great for kids and adults! Can’t wait to take the baby back here in a few years!
Wasn’t sure my boys (12 & 14) would enjoy going to a “nature” center mostly because, well, no video games there…
Boy was I wrong! They absolutely loved it! We spent a few hours walking around and exploring everything.
Definitely not the science center I remember as a kid. It’s so much nicer now!
Pleasantly surprised! We were vacationing with our 11 month old near Squam Lake for the 4th, and it ended up being a rainy weekend. We audibled to the Natural Science Center without expecting much, but it was pretty awesome....even in the rain!! Lots of shelter and interactive exhibits for kids of all ages, and the animals were still out. We'd love to come back on a sunny day 😊
