the life size dinosaur is fun, the rest of the museum is kind of dark and sad. Not worth the high admission price unless you do the other museums with it.

There are four museums in what’s called the quadrangle, but I only visited the Science Museum, which was very basic and not particularly modern. There were certainly some interesting things to see, but for the most part, a quick walk through seemed sufficient. If you’re in town for another reason and have some time to kill, you could do worse,... More

My family goes a lot! They have several different exhibits. Great for a rainy day. Purchase a membership if you go a lot it will save you money. Nice and clean. Fun for the kids.

The Quadrangle has 4 nice museums and a sculpture garden, and this is one of the museums. It was a great 1-2 hour visit, seeing displays on dinosaurs, African chronological science history, astronomy, geology, and an aquarium.

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.

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

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
