This was a wonderful place to take my grandson. He loved it!! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. There are a lot of hands on activities for kids of all ages. They even have a rattlesnake uggh but he was cool too.

Was looking forward to a nice visit to find that they were closed! The web site said they would be open and also had different hours posted on the door.

This is a must do. Super spot for a family, but we found our ages of 60 and 88 were perfectly suited as well. Be sure to push the fish buttons downstairs!

Went here on a whim. All exhibits were closed due to a "classroom" visiting. The "classroom" consisted of 4 kids and 2 disinterested "teachers". All the people who actually were there to see the fish ladder were told to come back later.

Discovered the learning center when we dicided to pull off the highway to see the waterway. The ladder had just been drained on our first visit, so we made a point to return when it was in season. Facinating talk given by the docents, and...More

Visit the Fishways! You'll enjoy the educational aspects of the facility, adjacent to a water power plant, and part of the waterfalls at Amoskeag. You'll learn the history of the area, see some of the natural critters, and most amazingly, be able to watch fish...More
