The museum is currently closed due to COVID-19.

In the interest of doing our part to support the health and wellness of our community and each other, the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire is temporarily closed to the public through the end of March. All efforts will be made to reschedule cancelled events, and all groups and individuals affected will be contacted by our staff.

We are taking this time to host virtual online activities to engage children and families during this challenging time. Please visit our YouTube channel, Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, Blog, and even Pinterest

We will continue to monitor developments and share any updates via our website and social media channels. We appreciate your support and understanding and look forward to welcoming you back to the Museum when we reopen!
