The MOSH has great permanent exhibits and very engaging rotating exhibits. I like the planetarium and educational programs.

We decided to try out the Museum of Science and History on Friday which was only $5 for each of us! We... More

this is a little outdated place with nothing to hold anyone of any ages interest. felt like the price I paid was to learn a different lesson and that is not to be a sucker to go here again--cant believe its even opened

First and foremost, I went to the museum with a group of 7, the youngest being 20 years old. This museum is more of a children's museum, and if you're an adult you will not be amused. Even though the museum was directed more towards children I would still not want to take my child there. First, the museum needs... More

We took our 3 year old and our two teen children on $5.00 Friday and they all loved it!! It was such a neat place with lots to do.. It didn't seem crowded and the $5.00 per person admission was an amazing value..

Went with our 3 & 5 yr old grand sons. This exhibit was amazing, totally life size and interactive. You can press a button relating to making the head or tail or body move. Well done! The T Rex outside was life size - it was programed to move and roar..

A truly and delightful way to enjoy a rainy afternoon. The museum has a lots of excellent exhibits to enjoy. If you plan right you can knock everything off in a day.

My son, mom and I went in 6/2 and we had a lot of fun. The dinosaurs were one of the best things in the museum. We also bought the extra tickets for the black holes planetarium show and it was well worth the money. It was only $2.50 for each h person. It lasted about 30 min. The museum... More

We visited the second day that Dinosaurs was released. It was busy but never felt crowded. The dinosaur display was wonderful and the permanent attractions were great too. Our kids had fun and they have enough displays/attractions for a 4 hour visit or so. There is a small play area for kids 5 and under near the front too. We... More

They usually have a "featured exhibit" every few months. The regular exhibits are pretty cool. My kids like to see how much are area changed. We even took Grandma to it, and it was fun for them to see her take on the "old" stuff. We haven't seen a planaterium show in years, but I remember them being cool.
