Our family has attended the past 2 homeschool days at MASM. We have done everything from coloring to extracting DNA. The museum is clean and so exciting!

“Super Fun Hands-On Science Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

My mom took me to visit this museum when we visited over Thanksgiving. My sister and I are grown, but we went along with our significant others and had a blast. The hands on science "experiments" were so awesome. Plus, they have the largest conical tesla coil in the nation and to see it in action with lightning shooting from it's cage is so amazing. Real family fun no matter the age!

“Wonderful kid's museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Interactive. Very interesting for kids and adults. Nice nature walk with big fish and beautiful fountain. Might want to skip the add-ons. Kids said they were lame.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience here at Mid-America Science Museum. All feedback is greatly appreciated! I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit with us. I apologize that the add-ons were not to your satisfaction. The Tesla show is a fan favorite. The simulator ride does change from time to time. Currently we have a longer sim ride than normal (it's over 6 minutes) and it is about exploring the Amazon. On your next visit I hope you find the add-ons more satisfactory. Thank you again for your feedback and anyway we can help make your visit better, please email us at info@midamericamuseum.org
