“Okay for a rainy day”

MWV Children's Museum
Ranked #11 of 49 things to do in North Conway
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 June 2013

We were happy to see a children's museum in North Conway and decided to visit since the weather wasn't the best. Perhaps we are spoiled by the children's museums in our area, but we were not impressed. This museum is designed for creative play but the displays are old and some of the toys are broken. I also did not like that there were no safeguards in place for making sure children left with their parents (i.e. matching bracelets, stamps, etc) and that there were no hand sanitizers in any of the kid rooms. We would not go back but do not discourage you from forming your own opinions. The cost is very reasonable at $5 per person.

We were visiting the area this past Memorial day. Turned out to be cold and rainy all weekend. We very much needed to get our 10 month old out of the hotel room. We found this museum online and decided to make the 1 hour drive. So glad we did! It was free for her and only $5 per adult! She was able to "run" around, touch things and see other children. It is great because nothing is off limits, everything is meant to be explored and enjoyed by the kids. It was pretty busy when we were there, but we were still able to access and enjoy everything. She especially loved the "levitating" ball machine. If you go, be sure to go downstairs, there is much more down there that people seem to overlook (there was nobody down there), including a glow in the dark hallway with the planets and stars on the walls. Our daughter really liked that as well!

We visited MWV on a Friday in Feb, there was a good number of other children there that seemed to be regulars. The place is pretty small but enough to keep my son busy for 2-3 hours. There were lots of costumes for him to wear and he liked that. A lady came in and did music for the kids and they had lots of instruments for the kids to play with. If we return to the area we would go back!

This is a wonderfully creative hands-on experience for children! As an added bonus, they have a terrific section of gently used children's items for purchase. Highly recommend the museum!

Great place to bring the kid's(under 5 I would suggest) on a rainy day or during the winter for some inside fun. this is not a large museum by any means, could spend about 2 hours and have seen everthing twice. My son enjoyed the train and truck room. They have some live performaces(check schedule0 which was nice. The price of admission is reasonable. The only problem that I encountered was that some parents allowed their children to go "free"(which I guess can happen anywhere). If you do go during winter, be prepared to take your shoes/boots off at the door as to not track salt inside. Would visit again when in this area.
