New Hampshire Museums

New Hampshire has museums devoted to skiing, snowmobiling, telephones, toys, farm life, history, science, nature, aviation, and art. The Currier is a gem with 13,000 works of art by Monet and other masters, plus tours of the only publicly open Frank Lloyd Wright–designed home in New England, the Zimmerman House.

New Hampshire's manageable museums let you immerse yourself in an area of interest without committing a full day to reading exhibit signs. Your kids won't be anxious to leave the newest museum in New Hampshire, though, when they find out that they can "drive" a snowcat. Extreme Mount Washington brings the summit's infamously ferocious weather to life, and the snowcat simulator is the first of its kind. The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire sparks kids' curiosity, too; here they can build flying machines, unearth Triceratops bones, and make glowing cave drawings. Plus, find more kid-friendly museum stops on the “Forts, Castles, and Kids” itinerary.
