I really enjoy the viewing experience at the Omni. I have seen immersive shows about The Grand Canyon, space, and race cars. Each experience was unique and the next best thing to being there in person. A great thing to do for adults and kids...More

I've been coming to the museum since I was a child and its one of my favorite places in Fort Worth! Documentary or full length feature film, I love watching movies at the Omni.

Anywhere is great! I prefer to sit towards the bottom and lean back. The lower seats tilt back further than the higher placed seats. Also, the higher seats make me dizzy. As you can see from the answers, it really is a... More

Museum of Science (13 Replies)
I was looking over the reviews of ther MOS, and I can't believe all the positive reviews. I reviewed it some time ago, and have gone there twice since chaperoning my kids field trip, and I stick by my words. The Pompeii exhibit is perfect for this place....nothing has changed in years. Another part that ticks me off....going there is like ordering off an a-la-carte restaurant.....everything is extra: planitarium, Butterfly exhibit, Omni Theater, special exhibits. Take it all in and it's...More

I have a self-renewing lifetime membership to the MOS and have somewhat the opposite view: the place lacks the intimacy that I remember as a child and seems to change its exhibits too often - when I go now I spend all my time looking for the models and exhibits that fascinated me in my youth. I have more passes to the Omni theater and planetarium than I could ever use in a lifetime. Have you considered becoming a member?

Museum of Science for little kids (9 Replies)
Hi there - we're hoping to take our 4-year olds to the Museum of Science the day or two after Christmas. Looking at their website I'm a little overwhelmed. Does anybody have a good feel for which exhibits would appeal to kids that age? Anything you particularly liked? Anything that's just a big ad that can be skipped (cough, Pixar, cough)? The website says there's a $5 surcharge for the Omni Theater/Planetarium/Butterfly/4D -- is that $5 per or $5 for all four? And finally, is it...More

I usually go to the museum once every few years or so, and it's usually a few hours of the day, not including set showtimes or the extras. Most of the base exhibits are child-friendly, if I recall. Even when there is something that is a bit more advanced in teaching, there's enough of a hook to interest the younger kids. There's plenty to climb on and mess with, and there are a couple of shows I'd recommend: If they're doing the live animal show, they'll have reptiles, maybe a porcupine,...More

Imax cinema (9 Replies)
I am travelling to Boston in November and are going to visit the New England Aquarium and I saw they've got an imax screen there showing nature films. I've also seen there is one at the science museum (Mugar Omni Theater). Has anyone been to both? If so what did you prefer? From what I can tell you don't wear 3d glasses at the Mugar Omni Theater which with a small child may be preferable. Thanks.

Response fromAlanm|
You only where glasses where the movies themselves are in 3D. The Aquarium films generally have water-oriented themes, as you might expect. Aim for the film you like rather than the venue. That being said, if you do not plan on actually spending time in the museum itself, I think you will find the Museum of Science out of the way from other tourist spots.
