The Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) in the Armory Square section of downtown Syracuse is a "must see" if you have kids. We took our grandson (5) who was fascinated by the variety of science exhibits. He crawled thru the cave looking at different rock formations. He enjoyed the large "Rube Goldberg" device that moved balls around a complex... More

The Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology located in downtown Syracuse is a fun place to take your kids, grandkids or oldsters that are young at heart. Its hands-on exhibits are intriguing and in a sly, sneaky way pretty darn educational. As the cliche goes, it makes learning fun. The first time I went there was in 1997... More

I grew up I Syracuse, and would have loved the idea of this place when I was a kid... the IMAX theater option is truly awesome (other than the wrinkles in the screen). Like so many things in this city, it is so close, yet so far from hitting the mark. So many of the displays look like hand-me-downs from... More

The kids 5 & 6 enjoyed the play structure and both were able to learn as well... The IMAX was exciting. Parking was terrible (Sunday). Only food options were from vending machines... Be sure to pack REAL food! Will visit again

We took our 4 year old here and he absolutely loved the huge playland they had. That kept him occupied for over an hour. He also liked the cave portion of the Museum as they had tunnels to crawl through and he could dig for fossils. The rest of the museum that was free was a wash for us. Even... More

Very hands on. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed, but kids of grade 5 or 6 will find it very educational and can relate their education to practicals. there is a play structure inside. our kids loved it. Helpful staff. Some (1 or 2) demos (especially in the space section) were not working.

My daddy bought me a membership here so we can go anytime we want. The kids play area is an amazing obstacle course that has air powered ball guns, slides, and all kin of cool stuff. The museum attractions are very hands on and kid friendly, and the IMAX is always fun.

This is an excellent, compact, Science Museum. Easily done in a day, less, if desired. Large climbing section for kids about 24 mos thru 10 or 11 years?! The IMAX movie theater is great. Larger cities have larger museums, but this has a good mix of hands-on activities, along with just "look" items. Sesame Street area is great for the... More

For your young science enthusiast this is a wonderful hands on experience that gives exposure to a variety of interests from modeling to serious research. Entry level science. For older kids this is boring.
