Kids Enjoy the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center

Ready for a fun day of learning about space and science? The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center, located north of Concord, engages its visitors to learn about aviation, astronomy, space science and Earth science.

This incredible center is named after New Hampshire residents, Christa McAuliffe, one of the seven who died in the Space Shuttle Challenger, and the first American in space, Alan Shepard.
