Dover, NH – The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire will celebrate its 31st birthday with a party that all families are invited to on Sunday, September 28th from 12 – 5 pm. The afternoon will include special guests, refreshments and activities, all included in the museum’s regular price of admission.
Thanks to New Hampshire Public Television, popular characters Peg and Cat, who have their own PBS TV show, will visit the museum from 1-4 pm. The characters will be making periodic appearances for hugs, handshakes and high-fives with their young fans.
A birthday party would not be complete without some traditional sweets, so museum staff members will be serving up cake and ice cream throughout the celebration. Each child can make and decorate a birthday crown to wear and take home, and play party games in different areas of the museum.
All the festivities are included in the museum’s regular price of admission: $9 for adults and children, $8 for seniors and no charge for babies under 12 months old. No reservations are required.
During the past 31 years, the Museum has grown from a small-capacity local museum to a flourishing regional institution that welcomes more than 93,000 visitors each year from all 50 states and beyond. Throughout its history, the Children’s Museum has been recognized for excellence in programming and leadership, most recently winning the NEMA Leaders in Innovation Award and the NEFA Creative Economy prize.
