Science Trip VT – Montshire Museum of Science

Montshire Museum of Science

I am excited to announce that my family now has a membership to the Montshire Museum of Science located in Norwich, VT. When I used to work from home full time, as I do again, the kids and I would visit this museum quite frequently during breaks or when we saw a must visit exhibit happening. Most recently we headed to the museum as a means to just get out of the house on a cold Winter day, but we have also gone there to see a real T-Rex.

This post is a part of a new series where I will continue to share New England Travel ideas for those who are interested in heading to New England for vacation with or without kids. Between two road trips a month and three kids who love a wide range of subjects, we often live our Positive Lifestyle by taking a day to head off into our local New England area to see what we find. Today’s feature is this amazing museum because it is fun, interactive, educational and just shy of an hour trip to ensure the kids don’t get too bored on the drive there.

Our recent visit to the Montshire Museum of Science included us viewing life as Iquana’s see it, testing out our skills with various technology that helps people with disablities move around and we even checked out the remains of Mystery Man that were on display. Of course, the most favorite and messiest part that is loved by the kiddos is the museum’s Bubble Area where you can do some cool things with bubbles.

The Montshire Museum of Science located in Norwich, VT has an affordable entry price and some decent packages to choose from to become a member. Whether you are in the local area and looking for an idea to have a day trip with the kids or traveling to New England sometime soon, I say check out this museum at least once because it is a super easy way to entertain children while educating them about science.

  1. My kids all loved going to science museums like this when they were younger! This one looks like it would be a lot of fun and really educational.

  2. I am so looking forward to when my girls are old enough to enjoy museums. My eldest has just started getting into dinosaurs (hearing a two year old trying to say Paracerolophus is hysterical!) so I’m excited to take her to the museums when she’s older.

  3. Sounds like a really great and fun place for the whole family! My family would enjoy something like this for sure!
