Dear Future Guests,
The MWV Children's Museum is open five days a week for exploration; Thursdays-Mondays. We do close for severe storms and for holidays. Starting July 1st, we will be open on rainy Tuesdays and Wednesdays when staffing permits. Call 356-2992 ahead of time on those rainy Tuesdays and Wednesdays before you head over.
Unlike most children's museums, we are focused on very young children; birth-9 years old. We have developed around the belief that play is an essential part of learning. Therefore, we are primarily a spot for holistic, imaginative play. Our exhibits are centers with themes that incorporate learning theory as well as core topical areas. You will find us to be very child focused and a relaxing place to interact with your children.
We hope to see you playing here soon! The cost for admission is $5.00 per person age one and up. If that is not affordable for your family, you may pay what is a good fit. The above admission policy is supported by two grants; one from the NH Charitable Foundation and The Pequawket Foundation. We call it our Everyone Plays Program.
Children in our space must be supervised by an adult at all times. Children should pick up centers before moving to the next. We discourage running, yelling and breaking (rules, objects and hearts). It is important to teach children their responsibilities as it applies to play and use of others play things. Adults are an important part of the learning process.
