Where are we going today?
The Mt Washington Valley Children's Museum - or the MWV Children's Museum - is all about one thing: giving kids a safe, and fun place to learn through play. What's not to love!
This fun museum is a place where kids up to 7 years can enjoy age-focused play through exploration, creativity, and imagination. They understand that the first 7 years of their precious lives are so important, so each of the experiences at the MWV Children's Museum are specially designed to encourage their development.
Here, there are no "do not touch" signs!
Kids can imagine themselves out in the greater reaches of the universe, or they can learn how clogs work. They can dress up and make believe, being anyone they want to be, or they can climb into the castle and fight the fierce dragon!
There are taxis that they can drive, or kitchens they can cook in. There is even a friendly tiger to help them in the colorful reading corner!
Fancy playing with some blocks? Why not! There is plenty of time for that, as well as caring for those in the hospital, as well as the vets surgery.
Keep an eye on special events too that occur throughout the year, such as science workshops filled with dance and play - and who said science can't be fun!
So why not take the kids to enjoy a day of fun, learning, play and using those brilliant minds of theirs, and head to the MWV Children's Museum. What will they be today!?

I did not actually get to go to the museum...showed up on a rainy day to find they were at capacity and the wait was over 30 minutes. Also it is difficult to find...it is in the plaza with stan and Dan sports and the sign is hard to read.

I was in the white mountains with my two kids on a rainy day and we came across the great children's museum. It was a great in door thing to do. The kids played for hours. There was a Dinosaur Exhibit and a great miniature tractor as well as indoor treehouse..Children seem to be entertained for hours!
