Investigate the wonder of nature and art! Ask about our scavenger hunt for children. Programs and lectures for all ages! Come in and "Go See the Wild!"
Designed by Dr. Henry Libby and built in 1912 in Wolfeboro on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, the Libby Museum has continued its founder’s original goal of educating visitors to the wonders of the natural world for over ninety years. Our doors open each summer for natural history exhibits, free lecture programs, a gallery for artists and craftsmen, scavenger hunts, and nature classes. The Museum hosts various children’s programs from other associations in the Lakes Region. A popular visit for summertime tourists, the Libby also holds memories for grownups who remember it when they were young.
The Museum represents an award-winning eclectic collection of wildlife, artifacts and oddities from New England and around the world. It displays Indian artifacts and the art of local artists, as well as an exhibit of artifacts from the Governor Wentworth Historic Site. The Libby Museum was voted “Best Eclectic Little Museum” in 2004 by The New Hampshire Magazine. In June 2006 it hosted and was featured on WMUR ABC 9’s “New Hampshire Chronicle”.
