When you visit Montshire's 100-acre Museum, you enter an exciting world of science, nature, and technology. Our spacious and light-filled building easily holds both permanent exhibits and featured exhibitions. The exploration continues outside in Science Park, the Woodland Garden, and along the nature trails bordering the beautiful Connecticut River. Whether you are experiencing the Museum for the first time or the hundredth, every visit is a new experience.
To provide our visitors the best possible experience we host several visiting exhibitions throughout the year and rotate the exhibits from our permanent collection that are on display. Not all permanent collection exhibits are on view at any one time. If there are specific exhibits that you would like to view on your visit to the Montshire, call ahead to check if those exhibits are currently on display.
