Family and Kid Friendly!

The New Hampshire Boat Museum is a fun place to visit with the whole family. While you are exploring the exhibits, your kids can have a good time at our Family Activity Center. In fact, the entire family can enjoy the activities together, too!

Build a virtual canoe – and then
see if it sinks or floats.

Go on a scavenger hunt to find special objects throughout the Museum. The winner becomes a Junior Admiral.

Try your hand at knot tying or other
skills at the Family Activity Stations around the Museum.

Practice your artistic skills by coloring boating scenes.

Challenge your creativity by building boats and other items with Legos.

 Play I-Spy and other games
with your entire family.


At home activities for kids

Since the museum is currently closed due to COVID-19 we are offering at home activities for kids! Over the month of May, every Monday afternoon, NHBM will post a new boating or lake related activity. These activities will include word searches, crosswords puzzles, coloring pages and more! Be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages for the latest announcement of these activities.
