Entertaining Kids With Science and Dinosaurs

Anyone with young kids and time to kill in the New Hampshire-Vermont region near Hanover will appreciate the Montshire Museum of Science, a hands-on children’s museum designed for families just like us with preschoolers in need of a good dose of brain stimulation.

The museum is packed with indoor and outdoor activities, and regularly features new exhibits. We were in town for an impressive dinosaur exhibit this past weekend that featured life-size skeletons and other fun stuff. The entry fee is steep — mom and dad are $12 a pop, kids pay $10, and 2 and younger are free — and you can’t leave without dropping at least a twenty at the gift shop, but it goes to a good cause.

Our new camera did a good job with the highlights:
