McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center Honored

Chosen As Top Family Attraction by TripAdvisor Company FlipKey

Concord, NH - The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center was selected as one of 2016's top family attractions in the United States by FlipKey, a TripAdvisor Company. FlipKey selected one attraction for each of the 50 states for its list of 2016 "Top Family Attractions Worth Traveling For". FlipKey Media Relations Specialist Jacqueline Gormley explains, "Award winners were selected based on traveler reviews, fun factor for all ages, and an internal voting process. To be named the Top Family Attraction in your state is quite an accomplishment."

"We are delighted with this honor," Discovery Center Executive Director Jeanne Gerulskis said. "The notification of our award comes right as we are in the midst of breaking all records for February vacation attendance since our independent nonprofit museum launch in 2013. We believe that science and engineering are critically important, fascinating and fun - and we are so glad that the families that come to the Discovery Center are enjoying their science and engineering adventures and recommending us to others as a great place to visit!"
