My kids love it here

There is so much to see and do. The Science Museum is great for school-aged kids to come and explore science and the world around them.

This museum is very kid focused. While adults can enjoy it, the focus is for kids. Great location right on the river

Interesting for older people and fun for young kids as a lot of things are interactive. Easily spend a half day or more here.

I grew up loving the science museum. For the most part I still do. I have issues with no variety. I understand exhibits are costly and expensive to set up. It just makes it a museum that you really only go to twice a year. Love the omni theater. Went with a school group of 4th graders to see the... More

We normally try to check out all of the special exhibits at the science museum and this is by far my favorite recently. It's very hands on and even my four year old loved it. The omni theater was great but should have a greater selection of films during the day.

This museum always has a lot to see and many presentations throughout the day. The Space exhibit was excellent.

We stopped in a few months ago to look at a current exhibit and ended up signing up for a family membership. We recently returned to go through the entire Space exhibit and Imax movie. It was great - what a bargain for educational, enjoyable entertainment.

Space exhibit is worth the money- our kids really enjoyed themselves! (Ages 11, 5, 4). Lots of hands-on fun exhibits.

We've been here several times but this time wasn't the best. The space exhibit was highly recommended, but it did not keep the interest of our kids ages 4-13. They were much more interested in getting out into the rest of the museum, so we felt like we wasted a lot of extra money on this exhibit. Definitely something that's... More
