My grandkids love it. Geared towards elementary school age children. Exhibits change periodically and the IMAX theater is great.

some really cool things to do like the helicopter simulator, unfortunately few things were not working which would have been nice to do... not a very large complex as other science museums but worth a visit in my opinion.

It was a nice little museum. The price was reasonable especially if you add the IMAX movie. It didn't require a lot of time, just a couple hours, and it is not a huge incredibly impressive museum, but all in all very enjoyable.

We took our three boys here this weekend since a friend suggested it. The boys had a great time with the interactive exhibits, play areas and climbing wall. They even got to watch some staff make ice cream with liquid nitrogen and have a sample after! They loved it! We spent 4 hours and easily could have spent another 4.

We're glad you enjoyed your visit. You came during our NanpDays celebration, when we have lots of extra hands-on activities throughout the museum. A good tip for you and other visitors: Check our website calendar for special activities before you come. That way, you can time your visit to coincide with the activities you want to do. More

As a Canadian traveler, I wasn't sure what to expect. This went above my expectations and I can't wait to go back!

Boring, outdated and boring. This could not keep our 7-year-old and 11-year-old engaged. It took us longer to find a parking spot than it did to get through this museum. What a waste of time and money.

My granddaughter, aged 7 really enjoyed the museum. We saw Imax movies and she spent most of the day just playing and exploring. I don't know if she learned very much, but she had a great time. The building is old and fairly dark (and we saw a mouse in the gift shop), but it was still a happy day.

We're glad your granddaughter loved her visit. You'll be amazed at the things she learned without realizing it. That's why science museums are so vital: They make learning fun and encourage children to consider careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. As for the mouse, well, we are in an old historic Armory building, and it's really hard to keep... More

I loved it all. It was full of hands on stuff and had items of interest for both young and old. It is a large building and kept us moving, but well laid out. The exhibits were top notch and we had a good time. Lots to see and after 2 hours we could have stayed longer, but had an... More

We're glad you had a great time and wanted to stay longer. Not sure if you're aware of this, but you can leave the MOST and come back in the same day. We do this so people can go out into Armory Square and enjoy lunch in one of the area's great restaurants. Just hold onto your ticket receipt and... More
