The MOST Museum as it is commonly called is a fantastic place to bring the family especially school aged children to spend a day downtown no matter the weather. When the snow is falling in Syracuse you can easily spend all day here with their interactive exhibits and displays. The Museum has undergone several changes to create new and exciting... More

We're glad that you enjoyed our museum and all it has to offer. We agree: There nothing like seeing a movie in our IMAX theater, the only domed IMAX in Upstate New York and one of only 60 in the world. We'd just like to add that there is free parking in the Trolley Lot, which is located behind the... More

We love this museum. Great exhibits, has an IMAX and something interactive for everyone. A definite place to visit in Syracuse for the young and old.

Thank you! We also think the MOST has something to offer people of all ages. Currently, adults will really appreciate our current exhibit, Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss. Pair it with a showing of "Volcanoes of the Deep Sea," which is shown at 1 p.m. every day we are open, and you will experience a deep-sea adventure. Look for... More

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

We're glad to hear that you and your family had such a great time at our museum. Come back this summer, when Stan Munro might be mounting another large exhibition of his toothpick masterpieces. His work is just amazing! I'm not sure if you're aware, but we invite families to bring their lunch to enjoy at the museum. We don't... 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!
