Have been to visit several times. We love the Imax theater and try to go every winter to see the Polar Express.

Decided to visit on a whim because we were on an impromptu trip. Definitely worth the money which wasn't much. It was $20 for admission to all the exhibits and an IMAX movie per adult and we were able to kill a good four hours there. The museum is right in armory square and you can leave the museum and...

We have a membership to the MOST so we can access many other museums across the country. We have 5 children under 9yrs old and This has been a museum that we have not forgotten about and talk about it very frequently. There are so many wonderful parts about museum, I can't just pick one. I would highly recommend this... More

I am a 45 year old male with no kids but like to go to places like this. I found that so many of the displays were missing parts i.e. Foot controls on helicopter simulator so it just crashes. I think it needs a deep cleaning also. The toothpick display was great. I didn't go into the iMax.

This place has a lot of potential and was probably great when it was new, but many of the exhibits were broken and dirty. Good concepts and hands on (what wasn't broken, anyway). Just needs some TLC.

We take our 3 year old here and he likes it, but we notice that many of the exhibits are outdated (like the solar system information on a computer display) or could use some refurbishment (like the planetarium). If we compare it to science centers or museums in other cities, it pales in comparison, but we're happy to have it... More

Thank you for your review. While I'm glad that your son likes the MOST, I'm concerned that our display has outdated information. Could you contact me at marketingdirector@most.org and let me know where the display is located? I want to make sure we are not giving incorrect information. -- Maria Welych More

My sister and I took her grandchildren to MoST during spring break. It was crowded but the kids had a great time. FYI - you can bring your own snacks, if we had known this, we would have done so.

Thank you for your feedback, and I'm glad your great-nieces and -nephews had a good time. Yes, we have created two areas where people can eat food they bring in, whether from home or from a nearby restaurant. And now covered drinks can be carried throughout the museum. -- Maria Welych marketingdirector@most.org More

We have a membership to the MOST because that gets us into science museums in other cities, like the Museum of Science in Boston and the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.
