$3 Admission Into NH’s Children’s Museum
The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire in Dover has created a low cost option for families to enjoy hands-on discovery in its exhibits. On the First Friday of every month during the school year, the museum stays open until 7pm and anyone who visits between the hours of 3-7pm will pay only $3 in admission per person.
“We understand that not everyone is in a position to afford our admission fees,” said Jane Bard, Children’s Museum of New Hampshire President. “So this $3 admission represents a 70% savings over regular admission, and by staying open a little later, we can offer families a fun opportunity for creative play before bedtime.”
In addition to enjoying later hours, visitors can visit the Gallery 6 art exhibition 13 Moons: An Abenaki Child’s Year for free as part of the Dover Art Walk. “Visiting Gallery 6 is always free to the public,” shared Tess Feltes, Gallery 6 Curator. “We’re thrilled to be a part of Dover’s first official Art Walk and to bring attention to this space within the museum that we designed to be inclusive and inspiring.” Gallery 6 is supported by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and the Fuller Foundation. Please note that the museum closes at 7pm, while the Dover Art Walk concludes at 8pm.
Library passes and other discounts do not apply during First Friday $3 After 3pm.
In addition to this $3 After 3pm program, The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire offers several initiatives to help families visit the museum for free or reduced admission including library passes, military discounts, $1 EBT card discounts and funded admission through social service agencies.
