The Sky’s The Limit At McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center In New Hampshire
A fair few notable people hail from New Hampshire. While we’re proud of them all, NASA’s first teacher in space, Christa McAuliffe, is particularly special. Killed in the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster in 1986, she’s a local hero. Today, we’re telling you about a special discovery center named partially in her honor. There’s so much to do and explore here, you’ll probably want to devote an entire day!
The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The first Friday of every month they’re also open from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. During school vacation weeks and the summer, their days open vary so be sure to check their website for hours and ticket costs. Tickets range from $8.50 to $11.50 depending on your age and the size of your group. For other questions, you can call them on 603-271-7827.
Address: 2 Institute Drive, Concord, NH 03301
