Most local families know that the Children's Museum of New Hampshire is a great place to visit. But we're always looking for ways to help spread the word about the museum, and its stellar reputation as not only a great place to play with the kids, but also as a leader in play-based learning and education! Your nominations and votes in the kinds of contests below help us out with that, and it's a simple, quick, no hassle way of showing CMNH some love.
