I visited the MOST last weekend with my mentee, an energetic twelve year old. She was excited to visit, despite the fact that she had just been the previous weekend. We paid for tickets to the IMAX movie, not to the entire museum, but we stopped to look at the exhibits on the way to the theater. The exhibits and... More

It was really terrible. We're a young family with two boys and we're always going to aquariums, zoos, museums. This one was the worst we've been to! Having recently moved to New York, we wanted to check out the MOST right away and we were completely disappointed. Way overpriced, old, dingy exhibits and the day we visited there was some... More

I'm sorry that you feel your visit was a waste of money. It's unfortunate that you came on a day when we had an event that filled the museum. You really should consider coming back. Since April, we have upgraded two permanent exhibits, the helicopter simulator and Magic Planet, and added two more, Space Dock and Rotary TOPO Theater. You... More

My husband and I visited with two boys ages 10 and 8. We had a fantastic time. There are lockers located at the front for a quarter. We used the lockers to store our coats and belongings that we did not want to carry. There are various sections to tour through the museum. Take your time and don't rush. Allow... More

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
