First I am going to say I only attributed 3 hours to tour everything so I would have given more time. I am a Boston Science museum so I had free entry with the 2 kids. The science museum was a little boring esp compared to the many others I have been to but this is one of several bldgs. They have 2 art museums also which usually not my cup of tea but I did enjoy my time browsing. One of the art museums had a travelling section attributed to the Beatles which was cool. The other art museum had a collection of roman statues/medieval stuff/Chinese items/mummy stuff and a special section of guitars. It was toward the end of my time or I would have spent more time there. The last museum which we passed by at 4:30 and didn't have much time was esp cool. It had very old police/fire/military stuff and a section related to toys/few dr seuss stuff. I would save the outdoor area with Dr Seuss statues/outdoor structure for last esp if u are short for time. Very cool place for kids to get out some pent up energy and cool photo op.
Next time I am in area will go back again to spend more time in areas that I had to rush thru
Didn't get to go to café I think it was closed already.
