“But your tickets in advance”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We went to see "The Bodies"exhibit. We did not buy our tickets in advance and had to stand in line for 40 minutes. While the exhibit was certainly worth it, the wait would have been difficult if we would have had children with us. Those who had thought ahead breezed through the will call line. This museum had terrific hands on exhibits and families with young children could easily spend a day here. We also took in the "Tornado Alley" film at the Omnimax and highly recommend it. Parking is easy with a cost of $10.

“Your kids will enjoy the museum, and so will you”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is a great museum with lots of things for kids and adults. There is a movie theater and an area with an exhibit that changes every several months. Also check out the National Park's Mississippi River visitor center.

“Pretty good for a science museum. A bit 'spendy' though.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a good stop with kids during a visit to St Paul. Many interesting and hands on exhibits. Clean and large. But it's not a place I flock to as a local. The cost is pretty steep to go without kids.

“Fascination for young and old”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We absolutely LOVED this museum and the activities inside. I wish we had museums like this back home in Saskatchewan. We were here when they held an exibition about the concentration camps in Germany. The exibit was phenomenal and I feel that was the best part of my trip to Minnesota. The museum was great and we really enjoyed it.
