MoST for Adults ?

Hi;

Is the Museum of Science & Technology interesting for adults or is it geared more to kids ?

Best Regards

The MOST is similar to most science museums. It has a bunch of science related exhibits that could interest both adults & children. It does, in addition have an IMAX theater with lots of good films.

That said, it's not like the Museum of Natural History with lots of blockbuster exhibits as it doesn't have the budget for it. However, if you can bring a kid along & see the museum through their eyes, you'll probably enjoy.

It doesn't have blockbuster exhibits like the Museum of Natural History. It's also not priced like the Museum of Natural History. You get a lot for your money. Be sure to check the calendar of events as well. Some of their programs like the autism presentation and the "tea and tour" are intended primarily for adults.

I was thinking about your post & I have an idea. Find an IMAX movie that you want to see & go to that. I believe that admission to the IMAX movie includes admission to the MOST itself. That way, if you don't like the museum, at least you will have seen a good movie.

The lower level of MOST is more exciting, they usually have a travellng exhibit (rotate every quaterly). They have the science playhouse (like McDonald playplace but bigger, 3 stories). The life and the cave exhibit are great. The planetarium is always nice. The upper level has a model railway exhibit, don't know whether the dinosaur exhibit still there or not. The top level is where you find the flight exhibit.
