Astronomy Day is happening with a twist for 2023!

Join us for opportunities to meet working astronomers and participate in hands-on astronomy activities and demonstrations.

The twist? The Montshire exhibit halls will be staying open late with presentations from astronomers and the New Hampshire Astronomical Society, and we’ll have telescopes outside for viewing the night sky!

Also joining us are speakers from the Cowasuck Band of the Pennacook-Abenaki People. They will be sharing stories and guided activities with visitors.
