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

Make sure to bring socks to play on the structure. The MOST also has reciprocity with other science centers so make... More

This place was a very fun place to visit. My husband and I took a day trip to Syracuse and decided to make a stop here. We had a lot of fun and were entertained for a few hours. On the negative aspect, some of the exhibits were missing parts or did not work. However, the exhibits that did not... More

My family and I went to the MOST museum and had a good time. The toothpick display of various world landmarks was pretty impressive and it was a neat place for children to hang out and play for a few hours. We didn't do the IMAX movie, but it was fun.

The MOST was a very kid friendly environment. Lots of things for kids to do and experience. Adults, it was still interesting but not nearly as much so. Also, you have to pay to park, as there is no lot.

This is a high quality museum with exhibits that will appeal to all ages. If you have small children I recommend getting a seasons pass because one visit is just not goimg to be enough.
