While it's wonderful to have a children's museum in Manchester, the state's largest city, it's a shame that so much of it appears run-down. The signs in the Stonyfield farm area are all faded and unreadable, the "submarine" buttons don't function properly, and the big attraction, the LEGO city, is impressive in size but does nothing. It would be much... More

I took my 11 year old twins here, and we all had a great time. Lots of hands on activities. The city of Manchester made of Legos was impressive!

Wonderful little museum with enough to interest guests of all ages. We have visited on several occasions and it never has failed to be interesting and educational. Perfect size for younger kids and those who are young at heart - a favorite memory of our children when they were early elementary age and visited with their 80 year old grandpa.... More

Located in an old mill building within the Amoskeag mill yard, once the largest mill complex in the US. Many hands-on exhibits, and an enormous Lego re-creation of the mills and downtown Manchester at the turn of the Twentieth Century.

We came here for our first time during my son's winter break. I wasn't sure what to expect. They have different areas for the children to explore; to see, touch and look at. My daughters' favorite activity was playing in the Children's kitchen. My son enjoyed the air gravity ride. They both liked the water and soap play. This museum... More

The See Science Center is a great place for not only children but adults will have fun too. You can relax and watch the children play....there's so much to do. And don't forget to visit Manchester by some very talented people and Legos in miniature...it's totally awesome complete with people and a working train. It's a "must see"! Been there... More

This museum is a favorite with my kids. So many hands on activities to try. Great atmosphere as well, being situated in one of the old Mill buildings. We will be going back again and again.

My wife and daughter love the science center and I love the Lego replica of Manchester and the mill yard. Plenty of interesting and interactive activities for little ones. A great option for young families, especially on rainy or cold days.
