“Not just for boys!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

It would be impossible not to be fascinated by the history behind the aircrafts, rockets, lunar modules and everything else in this museum. We were like children running excitedly from one piece to the other pointing and taking pictures. And the visit would not have been complete without the viewing of their Imax 3D film "Hidden Universe" This Museum is a MUST SEE!

“Always interesting...all be it very noisy”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Have been to this museum many times but it has been several years since my last visit. Did not go into all of the exhibits but was amazed (as always) with the displays in the main lobbies.
It tends to have very large groups of children (of all ages) visiting and the noise level is sometimes high, BUT this is a must see museum for all ages (and certainly not a place that excited voices can be held to a minimum!).

“interesting”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Great that these museums are free! Enjoyed it here, lots of good stuff, imax film we saw was a bit disappointing but sure the other ones are good. Was very busy but not so much that you can't get near the exhibits.
