Not far! Once you are in New Hampshire just take Interstate 93 to Exit 33. Then 1 mile south on Route 3 and you are on your way to Clarks!

Where are we going today?

Museums, trains, and bears....oh my! We're not in Kansas, but there's no place like a good old fashioned Trading Post!

First of all, Clarks Trading post is filled to the brim with fascinating museums.  There is an Americana museum filled with Americana like early house hold items and gas engines, an old 1884 Fire Station which is very cool for those kids who love trucks and fire fighters, a compelling Clark History museum, Avery’s Garage which is a neat replica of an old antique gas station, and the Florence Murray Museum.

Once you are museum'd out, there is a fun climbing tower which is similar to rock climbing where you can try to get to the top using great balance and skill, the gravity defying Merlin's Mystical Mansion (which you shouldn't enter if you suffer from claustrophobia, motion sickness, epilepsy or if you're afraid of the dark!), and a 450 feet of Segway track to burn some Segway rubber on.

All aboard for the While Mountain Central Railroad!  Choo Choo! You can enjoy a 25 minute train ride with a real wood burning, steam powered locomotive!  Pretty cool!  There is a VERY bendy Chinese Acrobatic Troupe who will amaze you at the things they can do, and of course the always popular bear show!  Kids can see these gorgeous creatures up close during the 30 minute educational and entertaining performance.

We haven't even listed everything there is to see and do...  We want to leave some things as a surprise!

Doing our bit

Clark's Trading Post celebrates being green by recycling plastic and glass. Echo, one of their show bears, is also the first bear in history to recycle! Pretty cool! If Echo does, you should too!.

Need a little extra help?

Most of Clark's Trading Post has paved walkways for easy access throughout the grounds and is wheelchair accessible. The train ride has a wheelchair lift, but some of the rides may not be suited for those with limited mobility. Check with them before you ride. .

Baby Facilities

The River Bank restroom building is handicap accessible and also has a baby changing/nursing room for mothers..

Can I get one of those?

Labelled as the “largest gift shop in the White Mountains”, you might have to dedicate a bit more time here than normal! They offer a variety of souvenirs for all budgets. T-shirts, jewelry, plush animals to homemade fudge and New Hampshire maple products…and that’s all before you get to the antique-style photo parlor to get your portrait taken! All located on the Victorian Main Street. .
