It's that time of year again when some museums change their visiting hours to their "off season" schedule. Here in the Children's Room, we want you to be aware of the following changes when planning your visit and reserving the membership passes:
The New Hampshire Farm Museum closed for the season on October 16. However, the museum and country store will be open on Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm through November 19.
From November through March, The Seacoast Science Center is open Saturday-Monday only from 10 am to 5 pm and "most days that school is out during the winter months". With the library's membership pass, patrons can visit any day of the week, year-round; just call ahead to let them know you are coming (they need to turn lights on!).
Strawbery Banke Museum ended their general museum hours on October 31. They will remain open for guided tours of four historic houses on Saturdays & Sundays, November 5-6, 12-13, 19-20, 26-27 and on Friday, November 25 from 10 am-2 pm.
From December 1-30, the museum will be open weekdays for guided tours of five decorated historic houses from 10 am to 2 pm. Tours begin on the hour with the last tour leaving at 2 pm.
Also, in December the museum's popular Candlelight Strolls will be held Saturday and Sunday, December 3-4, 10-11, & 17-18. Saturdays from 5:00pm-9:00pm & Sundays from 4:00pm-8:00pm you can stroll through life in a simpler time as the history of New England's holiday traditions, sounds, & smells unfold around you.
From December 31-April 30 the museum will be closed.
