Used to go to the Museum of Science and Technology a few times a year when the kids were younger, but I don't go so much anymore. It has some interesting exhibits and they change some of them every now and then. It's good for a couple of hours of distractions for the kids.

Went to see Polar Express - Make sure you sit at the back seats or you will end up with neck pain. This museum used to be good and had a lot more exhibit, but this time around I almost just felt sad for it. I hope it continues to bring visitors.

See a film at the IMAX theatre. We saw the Polar Express and it was great. The exhibits are fun and educational for kids. However, the condition was disappointing. Many exhibits were missing or broken. None of the simulators worked. I would recommend the Rochester museum of play instead. Worth the drive!

This is in downtown so parking is a little pain but got there early. The entrance is well marked but a large building with only one entrance, so I walked around the block hunting it. The woman at the entrance desk was very friendly and helpful. There is the Museum then a I-Max and a Planarian, I just got the... More

The MOST is our 4 year old's weekend destination of choice. Membership was a great bargain- $120 gives three people access to the museum and planetarium for a year with unlimited IMAX movies. Museum highlights for our son: the 3 story playground, the giant fossil-hunting sandbox, the small topographical sandbox, the artificial cave tunnels, the motion simulator, the model trains,...

Parking is a bit tough here, but this little museum was great! Our toddler was a tad young for it, but he was amused in the toddler space for hours and could have stayed longer. Would definitely go back!

We're very glad you enjoyed your visit! Next time you come, bring your parking receipt from the Trolley Lot behind the MOST and get it stamped at the admissions desk. That will get you a $2 discount on the pricing! My children loved the playhouse, too, when they were small. But it was the science education throughout the museum that... More

It's a nice museum, little but great for kids. Me and my friends came here to kill some time and it was interesting. Exhibits on the human body, space, geography and engineering and I got this nice little geode.
