Ringing in the New Year

At the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire


Dover, NH – (December 27, 2019) – Trying to stay up till midnight to ring in the New Year is difficult for adults, let alone kids, so the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire offers an earlier, kid-friendly option! Visit the museum on Tuesday, December 31st for special hours, 9am-3pm for a unique New Year’s Eve family celebration.

Three “countdowns” to midnight” at 11am, 12:30pm and 2pm complete with a glittery disco ball drop and wish blimps that will descend on the crowd! Families can play in the exhibits, make sparkly recycled paper hats, and take pictures in the museum’s photo backdrop, complete with fun props. The museum closes early at 3pm, so everyone can be home, safe and warm in their pajamas for the New Year. The family fun is all included with museum admission and is free for museum members.

The museum will be closed on Wednesday, January 1st, but reopens for regular museum hours on Thursday, January 2, 2020.
