Don't Miss These 6 Museums
Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium.
The Fairbanks has remained largely unchanged since the late 1800s. This hall of curiosities holds a mummified cat, a painting composed entirely of bugs, and more mounted animals than you can count. If not the largest collection of Victorian-era taxidermy in New England, it’s certainly the most cramped. Bears, sharks, and the obligatory moose stand shoulder to shoulder, towering over the museum’s younger visitors. Your children will be either captivated or terrified, but we guarantee they won’t be bored. Mon.-Sat. 9-5, Sun. 1-5; closed Mon. mid-Oct. to mid-Apr.; $6, seniors and ages 5-17 $5, under 5 free. Call or visit Web site for planetarium schedule; $5.
