Montshire Museum Named a 2013 “Best of New England —  Editors’ Choice” Winner by Yankee Magazine

For Immediate Release

Montshire Museum of Science has been recognized as a 2013 “Editors’ Choice” winner in Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England.

  The Editors' choice designation is awarded by Yankee’s editors and contributors, who name select restaurants, lodgings, and attractions in New England to the exclusive list. For 37 years, Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England has been the most widely distributed and best-selling guide to the six-state region, providing readers with a comprehensive vacation planning tool and daily reference.

“The Montshire is honored to receive this recognition from Yankee,” says Montshire Museum of Science Executive Director David Goudy. “I am very proud of the Museum’s staff and volunteers for their continued dedication to creating an exceptional experience for Museum visitors.”

“This major science center demystifies natural phenomena, from fireflies to fog, and offers movies and images from the Hubble space telescope,” writes Yankee. The Museum’s 110 acres in Norwich, Vt., includes Science Park with water features, the Woodland Garden, several miles of nature trails, and outdoor exhibits.

“Every one of the 300-plus places we highlight contains an untold back story about someone striving for perfection, having a dream, and having the vision to make a difference, whether it’s a small artisan’s studio or a lobster-in-the-rough shack or a dressed-up steakhouse on a tree-lined Boston street,” says Yankee’s editor, Mel Allen. ”While it may be hard to create a business, the true challenge is in making it work, being good enough that it endures and brings people back. Those are the qualities we look for and reward when we say ‘Best of New England.’”

Yankee Magazine’s May/June 2013 Travel Guide features 317 “Best of New England — Editors’ Choice” winners, in categories including  attractions, food & dining, lodging, and bargains.
