The Museum is located on a 110-acre site along the Connecticut River, and the Museums' outdoor environment is a large part of the visitor experience. Science Park is a two-acre exhibit area in a beautiful, park-like setting where hands-on exploration of hydraulics truly becomes an immersion experience. Also outside is a network of easy-to-moderate walking trails for visitors of all ages and fitness levels, and an outdoor pavilion.

The Montshire Museum of Science is a hands-on museum located in Norwich, Vermont, offering more than 100 exciting exhibits relating to the natural and physical sciences, ecology, and technology.

The Montshire Museum is an official visitor center for the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge.

Montshire Museum rentals offer an unrivaled location with spectacular gathering places indoors and out. Hands-on exhibits and the outdoor pavilion make the Montshire a truly unique and beautiful site for special events.


"The purpose of the Montshire Museum is to create, awaken, foster, and nurture an interest in and curiosity about the physical and natural world by providing programs, experiences, and exhibits emphasizing real objects and phenomena."


The Montshire Museum first opened in Hanover, N.H., in 1974. The "new" Montshire occupies a 110-acre site along the Connecticut River.
