We live in NH and buy the family pass every year for many reasons. 1) The Science Center is dedicated to the preservation of NH wildlife 2) The Science Center is an instructional facility enlightening to all regarding NH plants/forests/animal life. (Kirkwood Gardens is also accessible from their grounds. At Kirkwood, you will find a craft shop and gardens to explore) 3) Location is perfect; close to Squam Lake where you can also take one of their guided pontoon boat tours on beautiful Squam Lake for a reasonable price NOTE: This may not be of interest to some young children. They have to remain fairly immobile for the tour which is about 1.5 hrs. However, GREAT for adults and older kids.
4) you can bring lunch in and use one of their picnic tables; OR, you can grab lunch at the very reasonably priced Lakeside Restaurant which is a seasonal "order at the window" restaurant directly across from Squam. There's also the famous Walters Basin directly on the lake next to the Pontoon Boat dock 5) There is an activity house geared for young children where they can be turned loose and experience tons of climbing, crawling, and sliding fun 6) Did I mention the animals? Mountain Lion, Bobcat, Bear, Deer, Otters, Birds of Prey, Fox, etc 7) A great walk all on a well manicured walking trail through the woods 8) Educational, 9) Priced right while benefiting injured animals! 10) Squam Lakes Natural Science Center = An exceptional place to visit for any age!
