The Mount Washington Observatory Weather Discovery Center is a free interactive science museum that brings the wonder of the atmosphere right to your fingertips!
Explore the science of climate and weather through fun, interactive exhibits for the whole family, like our giant air cannon, touchable tornado, real weather instruments, huge hands-on maps, wind current boat pond, and much more. Plus, meet and interact with the hardy observers living and working in our summit weather station through a twice daily live video chat! And don't miss The Weather Store for home weather instruments, books, and educational toys!
Made possible by a collaboration between the Mount Washington Observatory and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Forecast Systems Laboratory (NOAA-FSL), the mission of the Weather Discovery Center is to enhance awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the atmosphere, its complexity, its impact on the human experience, and the many ways in which atmospheric phenomena are observed and interpreted.
