Long Description:
With more than 140 exhibits relating to the natural and physical sciences, ecology, and technology, the Montshire provides exceptional opportunities to engage students of all ages as they explore and discover the physical and natural world. Each year more than 15,000 students participate in a school visit to the Montshire. School group visits may include special demonstrations from Museum Explainers. An advance reservation is required and subject to availability.

We visited the museum on a rainy day and we were surprised to see so many people with a majority of participating children of all ages.
