A great place for kids from toddlers to 4th grade

The live owls, the live lizards, fish, turtles and snakes are a huge hit with the 7 year old crowd. There is lots to do. It's worth getting a membership as it transfers to MiSci... read more

The live owls, the live lizards, fish, turtles and snakes are a huge hit with the 7 year old crowd. There is lots to do. It's worth getting a membership as it transfers to MiSci and you can visit both museums on one membership. Great for little scientists and nature lovers. They also do sleep overs for girl scouts/boy scouts... More

Looking for something really great for children and adults, go to the The Children's Museum of Science and Technology. We took the grand kids on a day when it was free. Everybody had a blast. They had a story time on nano scale how low can you go. The reader was very good and kept going when obviously the topic... More

Excellent displays of a large variety to enthrall children of various ages. Thankfully the large reptile display is in a separate room. Grandchildren went in to view, while Nana stay outside the room.

This is a great Children's Museum of Science and Technology in the Albany, NY area. The exhibits are great and they have a theatre which shows movies related to children. Great learning experience. Highly recommend.

Perfect for little ones on a rainy day. Small enough to get through it all, large enough for a great time. Staff was above and beyond.

We went to this museum when we realized it was free due to our ASTC Passport membership from our local museum. I believe it's only $5 to get in anyway. It's very small, however our 6 and 8 year old were very happy to be there. The front desk attendant gave them a scavenger hunt sheet of paper that kept... More

They've made strides to add some other rooms and more activities. Just a bit too small and lacking that real excitement factor. We will go back though the kids do really enjoy it.

Its hands on, not very large but the kids enjoy it. It is a museum on how to care for fish life and they can actually touch them. its interesting but don't think its something outsiders would really enjoy. local kids yes. goes too fast.

This museum is a bit smaller than some other children's museums but I think that is part of the charm. For smaller kids there is a lot less walking to do and with no stairs or elevators to navigate it is much easier to bring a stroller. They have live animals, some of which the children are allowed to touch... More
