Children young and old can enjoy all of the hands on educational exhibits. Learn about the heavens in their planetarium or catch a movie in the IMAX Theatre.

Took our kids here while we were in Syracuse visiting family. This is a very hands on museum and was entertaining for my 3 year old as well as my 16 year old.

Fun for kids, ok for adults. Good IMAX theater. Young kids love the climbing area. I am fascinated by the rube goldberg machine. I take the grandkids about 1x a year,, and we all enjoy it.

Great resource for Central New York. Well worth it to drive here from an hour or more away. Kids love it here and so do I. The biggest challenge sometimes is finding parking close. The IMAX theater is a great place to watch a movie for both entertainment and education.

Small museum but has alot of hands on things for the kids to do. The IMAX is amazing and offers a few different movies to choose from. Nice place to spend the afternoon with the kids. The parking and access to the museum in the winter isn't the greatest and the building/exhibits could be better maintained. Other then that no... More

We were amazed with the Museum of Science & Technology (M.O.S.T.). Had no idea such a place existed in Syracuse. A magnificent experience, especially in the Omnitheatre. It's a magnificent IMAX Theatre showing a variety of different features. We chose "THE VOLCANOES OF THE DEEP" a fascinating look at the sea life in the very depths of the Ocean, &... More

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

We're glad that you enjoyed your visit. We also think our IMAX theater is pretty great. Did you know it's the only domed IMAX theater in Upstate New York? The only other one is on Long Island. If your grandchildren live close by, we have a special grandparents membership you might be interested in. Let me know and I can... More

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.
