Summer at the Montshire - It Just Keeps Getting Better!
May 23, 2011
For Immediate Release
NORWICH, VT, May 23, 2011 — Montshire Museum's Science Park and summer go hand-in-hand. Floating balls down the Rill, creating amazing shapes with flowing water at Water Bells, and enjoying an interactive immersion in the Water Dance exhibit are great ways to spend a summer day in Norwich, Vermont. This year visitors have something new to look forward to. First, the new Hughes Pavilion overlooking Montshire's Science Park offers summer visitors a needed respite from the sun or light rain, and the adjacent rest rooms provide extra convenience.
The new pavilion also provides the perfect spot for King Arthur Flour to serve lunch to Montshire visitors. Beginning June 23 through Labor Day (10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) visitors may purchase a delicious lunch and yummy snacks under the pavilion. Prepared daily by King Arthur Flour, offerings will include sandwiches, fruit, granola bars, chips, ice cream, cookies, and cold beverages.
No longer do you need to leave the Museum for lunch or remember to pack a picnic. But, don't forget the swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen.
The Montshire Museum of Science is a hands-on science center located on 110 acres in Norwich, Vermont. Visitors will enjoy more than 100 interactive exhibits relating to the natural and physical sciences, technology, and more. The Montshire is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed Thanksgiving and Christmas).
