The Montshire Museum of Science has over 125 exciting exhibits relating to the natural and physical sciences. The Montshire is located on a 110-acre site along the Connecticut River. The Museum is self-guided and is largely handicapped accessible.
A woolly mammoth with fur that is a foot thick, a tiny horse that bounds like an antelope, a seven foot tall carnivore that has the head of a giant warthog—meet them all at the Montshire Museum of Science this summer.
Close observation—it’s a central process in doing science, and it’s also where many artists begin their interpretation of the world. This fall, Montshire visitors will have the opportunity to see the results of one remarkable artist’s close observations, artistic skills, and lifelong fascination with the natural world.
