Located in an old mill building within the Amoskeag mill yard, once the largest mill complex in the US. Many hands-on exhibits, and an enormous Lego re-creation of the mills and downtown Manchester at the turn of the Twentieth Century.

This museum is a favorite with my kids. So many hands on activities to try. Great atmosphere as well, being situated in one of the old Mill buildings. We will be going back again and again.

I believe their hours are 10:00-4:00 Mon.-Fri. They sell snacks and beverages and have a room where you can bring your own food. There are also plenty of restaurants close by.
