"It's the only museum where you can come and touch things. [At other museums] you have to walk around, keep your hands in your pockets. Here we say go up, touch it, play with it, push it, figure out what makes it work."

Located in downtown Portsmouth, with easy access to parking plus several other museums, shops and delightful "kid friendly" restaurants.
