3 adults attended on 8/3/14 to get a feel for the facility. We spent nearly 3 hours exploring every exhibit. There are age-appropriate exhibits for ages 2-teen/adult, but the age group likely to get the most out of a visit would be around 5-10 years old. For the most part, the exhibits are very hands-on. There's also an IMAX theatre... More

What an incredible place! I brought my six and three year old sons there and we had so much fun we went back the next day. The exhibits are great and there is the most amazing play structure ever. Make sure to bring socks to play on the structure. The MOST also has reciprocity with other science centers so make... More

This place was a very fun place to visit. My husband and I took a day trip to Syracuse and decided to make a stop here. We had a lot of fun and were entertained for a few hours. On the negative aspect, some of the exhibits were missing parts or did not work. However, the exhibits that did not... More

My family and I went to the MOST museum and had a good time. The toothpick display of various world landmarks was pretty impressive and it was a neat place for children to hang out and play for a few hours. We didn't do the IMAX movie, but it was fun.

The MOST was a very kid friendly environment. Lots of things for kids to do and experience. Adults, it was still interesting but not nearly as much so. Also, you have to pay to park, as there is no lot.

This is a high quality museum with exhibits that will appeal to all ages. If you have small children I recommend getting a seasons pass because one visit is just not goimg to be enough.

I loved the IMAX movie. If you haven't seen one, do yourself a favor and get the experience. The motion simulator was somewhat overpriced for the short amount of time you are in there. The exhibits were great for kids—they even had a little climbing wall. A nice visit for a family with younger kids.

Love taking the kids here on a rainy day - though it's fun any kind of day. :) They can play for hours on the indoor playhouse thing, and adults are free to join in the climbing fun. The exhibits are always cool and while I have never seen a movie in the IMAX theater I heard it was great... More

Although the museum is geared towards a younger crowd the subjects are still interesting. The imax theater has good shows. Would highly recommend.

The Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology is great place for kids. I had a lot of fun there even. I've been years ago as a kid, but my boyfriend and I went and there is a lot to see and do. I wouldn't highly recommend it unless you have children with you, but since it isn't pricey... More
