Toddlerfest

September 15 - 30, 2018

Time for little ones to rule the roost!

When the big kids go back to school, it's time for young visitors to rule the roost and enjoy exciting activities geared just for them and their caregivers, all offered here at the Children's Museum of New Hampshire! Our annual Toddlerfest celebration offers guests ages 0–5 experiences with music and movement, science, art and storytelling while caregivers learn how these experiences relate to their child's cognitive growth and development.
