This is a very pricey cross between a zoo and a nature trail. The science center features several exhibits relating to the animals in the area. It also has exhibits relating to conservation etc. They offer animal shows, demonstrating live animals several times a day, and feedings three days a week, so check the schedule to see if your favorite is on display. In addition to the move animal exhibits the center features several walking trails offering an opportunity to see local wildlife and plant life. Most tree species are marked for easy identification of the local foliage. There is also a ninety minute boat tour of squam lake available for an additional fee.
Took our son to visit this location and he absolutely had a blast. It was cool to see the different animals. There is also a playground so kids can play. Beautiful place. We enjoyed it. Weather was cool the day we went but by the time we finished walking/chasing after our son, we were pretty warm by the end.
Highly recommended to bring your kids to see all of the animals.
I love this place! It's like a zoo. You see different creatures and read little cool facts about New Hampshire's wild life on the way of the paths you walk. But, it's not only just all walking, you could also visit the play ground they have so your kids could have fun and a educational time.
Lots of wildlife to see and many exhibits for children of all ages to interact with. A great (and fun) "learning" center. There was a fantastic Dinosaur exhibit while we were there, and I hope you get to see it. We had a wonderful day's outing here!
If you like peace and nature this is a place for you.
The nature walk was a wonderful time learning about nature as you are immersed in it. Wonderful.
I also too the lake boat trip that only made thing even better.
