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

Kids love the exhibits especially the trains and the toothpick buildings. There is an IMAX theatre (extra cost). Regular admission may be covered by other science center memberships. Parking on the street or in city garage. Lockers available (small fee) and place to eat (BYO or vending machine). Lots of eating places in the area. We always save the multi-story... More

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
