This is a superbly done venue for finding new questions and getting some intriguing answers. It provides everything from traditional dioramas and interactive exhibits to hands on simulation opportunities. Just telling my grandson that the MOST is a destination ramps up his energy. Prepare for crowds on weekends.

This place is great to keep the kids busy. It has all of the science related attractions for the older kids as well as the huge climbing play area jungle gym for toddlers (with the help of a parent) and older kids as well! We were lucky to see their dinosaur exhibit which was pretty cool.

This is a terrific science museum, very wide-ranging, from laser games to IMAX movies, geology, astronomy, physics and more. Staff is very sweet and caring. Lots to do and see. One point: an alcove of vending machines doth NOT a cafe make. Re-name it, or build an actual cafe!

We took our granddaughter there for a fun day. She enjoyed it. There was a lot to see and do. Hands on things for young children to play with.

Picture having thousands of toothpicks at your disposal as you begin to sculpt your building projects. Give it up to this fellow, he's got it down to a science, and anything we attempt will only make his work look better. One peak at his work and you're hooked and asking yourself, "How on Earth does he do this?" Cheers, Don

3 adults attended on 8/3/14 to get a feel for the facility. We spent nearly 3 hours exploring every exhibit. There are age-appropriate exhibits for ages 2-teen/adult, but the age group likely to get the most out of a visit would be around 5-10 years old. For the most part, the exhibits are very hands-on. There's also an IMAX theatre... More

What an incredible place! I brought my six and three year old sons there and we had so much fun we went back the next day. The exhibits are great and there is the most amazing play structure ever. Make sure to bring socks to play on the structure. The MOST also has reciprocity with other science centers so make... More
