Small but good

This is a smaller sized science museum. Our children liked that there were a few live animals and the huge dinosaur model.

Our family had a blast at the Science Museum. Lots of co exhibits to look at, tons of animals to admire, a small aquarium to explore--what's not to love? Our 11- and 8-year old daughters could have spent a few more hours just in this section of The Quadrangle.

Its a great museum to visit if your looking for something to do during the day. Unfortunately once you've been here once its not worth a visit again since the exhibits don't get changed around much.

If I were five then this museum might do the trick. I haven't been impressed. Actually, I've been kind of disappointed. But because the other museums are there and well worth going to, I stop by the Science Museum hoping something cool will show up.

We went this past weekend with our young children and really enjoyed the museum. The main reason we came is for the rainforest exhibit and we were quite disapointed with that. There is a $5 extra charge to see it and trust me it was not worth it. The rest of the museum was very well done though and the... More

Today was my first time visiting the museum. I took both my children and their friends so 4 kids and 1 adult. Even with my discounted library pass, I paid $64. The Rain Forest Exhibit was an additional $5/person and though it was a nice exhibit, there was nothing extra to justify the additional cost. For the size of the... More

Its a science museum. A little bit of everything in a small sized building. Its not NYC or Boston, but its fun nonetheless. Definitely worth a membership if you are a local resident

Kind of small but done with a lot of attention to detail and a very large amount of effort. If you can't get to the Smithsonian, get to this one.

I took my kids here with friends when we were visiting Springfield. I was delighted to see such a variety of interesting exhibits. I enjoyed looking at and being a part of them. There were actually ones that you could actually touch and feel. This is awesome, especially for kids who are hands on learners. I highly recommend the Springfield... More
