Love science museums. The Science Museum of Minnesota is a great one. It is so vast. Well laid out museum. Great place to take your kids, but if you don't have kids, it is still a great place to wander around . Check it out!

The museum is both lovely and functional and the staff are helpful and friendly. Though the museum is kid friendly, adults will enjoy their visit also

This is really geared more for kids and field trips. Once inside you have to pay extra for shows and special exhibits. Just not much for adults to see and do.

This center was a very good experience for even myself. I say that because I was touring by myself since I was here with my fiancé on business. This was a suggestion from a resident of the area and it really panned out! There are very neat exhibits that cover most facets of science. They have also brought in other... More

Wow! My husband and I took our three kids (ages 7, 10, and 12) and all of us were engaged for hours. This is a fantastic museum with tons of hands-on experiments and activities for all ages. In addition to the self-guided exhibits, there were oodles of staff/volunteer directed experiments as well. The café offered some delicious, healthy options which... More

Put aside some time for this one. As you progress from chemistry to applied physics and pass through space and dinosaurs, there are displays for every age. My 4 and 7 year olds loved it, and there was even a room where my one year old could play with huge blocks. Very impressive, so much to see, and a great... More

In the Museum's Big Back Yard, check out the beautiful gardens, play mini golf, feel dwarfed by the tall prairie plants in the prairie maze.

The special exhibit was Space. After you purchase your admission from the friendly staff you are drawn into the main hall of the museum. In front of you hanging from the ceiling is a over the top replica of a astronaut suit. Awesome sight. Very well layed out educational exhibition for young and old in a beautiful setting overlooking downtown... More
