“Good place for the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you're looking for a place to kill a few hours and have a little fun with the kids and maybe learn a little about science and history, this is a good place to go.
They have tours and a really cool gift shop.
All in all a cool place for the kids.

“MOSH - fun for any age”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We visited MOSH this past Saturday with my young children. They had a great time and enjoyed the Science Show the best. I would recommend children to be a little older to get the full educational value of the exhibits. My suggestion for the museum would be to have more interactive / hands-on activities for children under 4. Throughout the exhibits, my kids were hitting buttons but not getting much value out of they were hearing or seeing - many exhibits required a lot of reading and such.

“Awesome kids museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

My kids love this museum. We've moved and they are still talking about it. It is totally interactive which they love. You get to walk through a huge "mouth" and go "inside" the human body, and you can make a stomach "burp" which kids love. It takes you through several body systems, then back out into the museum. There are a bunch of really neat things the kids can do there. They also do classes for kids, and homeschoolers programs like once a month, which we were interested in. It's right downtown on the river, but it has it own parking lot, and we never had any trouble finding parking. It's not huge, but I liked that because it was more manageable and they didn't get too overwhelmed or worn out. It is definitely worth visiting if you have kids, they will love it.

“Good for families with kids of all ages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We made a trip from out of town for the museum and we had fun. It wasn't spectacular, but it was enjoyable. The staff was very nice and we spent 2+ hours. We left for lunch and then came back; the kids (aged 5 & 2) liked the play area. We could have spent more time if the kids were older. Definitely worth visiting if you need a break driving down I-95.
