  • We were in VT to baby sit for our grandson as his parents had to return to work post-Covid-19. We were looking something to do with a 9 month old while maintaining social distancing. The Museum...  more »
  • The Montshire Museum of Science was awesome! I visited with my two young children, ages 4 and 2, and there was so much to do. Everything was hands on, great play areas for young kids, although we...  more »

  • Fabulous, very doable and enjoyable science museum which works for the entire family. Visited with family and all ages were delighted with this wonderful museum. Great, fun, educational, hands on, experiential museum with a great combination of fun, challenge, learning, entertainment all in a reasonable sized venue which can be enjoyed in 2 hours or a full day. Beautiful grounds, water attraction, place for kids to run around for n swim suits under sprinklers and walk through artificial stream. Great nature hike and view of the river. Great puzzles and mind games. A chance to launch gigantic bubbles. Plenty of things for hyperactive kids and the most studious of your brood. Very highly recommended! Great staff. Great gift shop and book store.
  • We have a membership here. We love it and visit as often as we can. We usually don't see everything each visit but we could spend hours here. The staff is always attentive and the ladies at the front desk always have a smile on their face. The bathrooms are usually in great shape. There's not usually any staff outside for the water feature exhibits. They do change some exhibits out often bit there's a few that have never changed. The tree house area for little ones is fun but seems it needs some updating or someone in the staff to check in on it, the balls are often not there and things seem to be missing but I know kids can be rough and in all the excitement leave with items meant to stay. All in all, there's so much to do here. It's fun for all ages but my 8 year old has loved it since she was probably 4 years old. Our 1 year old loves most of it also.
