It’s gratifying to see that one of our favorite attractions for kids has not only moved, but moved up to a much bigger space with room for more activities. We were giddy with the mesmerizing images of the Human-Sized Kaleidoscope at the Children’s Museum of Portsmouth (see www.boston.com/travel/explorene/newhampshire/articles/2005/06/26/mirror_images_mesmerize_kaleidoscopic_explorers/) and we’re delighted that the kaleidoscope survived the move—and the name change. The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire opens on Wednesday, July 23, in new digs at 6 Washington Street in Dover (tel: 603-742-2002; www.childrens-museum.org). Check it out.
