Included with today's admission is a Learning Garden drop-in program at 11am called "Make an Herb Sachet." This program usually  ends with families in the garden to pick what they want to take home. Sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

Visitors to the Children's Museum of New Hampshire must reserve their spots and pay admission here online prior to their visit.

If you were gifted a CMNH Membership and this will be your first time visiting, please select the "w/discount" price types below to reserve your date/time for free, and then present your gift membership certificate when you arrive at the museum.

If you are a Member of an ASTC or ACM museum, through which we offer reciprocal benefits, please choose the "w/discount" price types below to reserve your spot for free, then present your member card when you arrive at the museum.

If you have a discount of any kind besides a CMNH Membership (see here for discount information) such as Library passes, EBT cardholders, or Military:
