The museum is nice, but I've visited much nicer science museums. However, the view of the river is amazing. Also, the gift shop is nice and the IMax theater is very nice. If you visit the IMax theater make sure to sit as high as possible. The one downside of the museum is cost. It is quite expensive, especially if you also visit the IMax theater.

This place is amazing. Be prepared to spend a lot of time touring the exhibits, you may want to come back more than once.

With no expectations we wandered through the museum learning about heartbeats, radar, dinosaurs and Minnesota. The pace was leisurely and there were few others to impede our progress. We took our time and rediscovered curiosities long since forgotten. I urge you to visit, bring your kids and if like me you have no children then act like one yourself!

I went there for a school trip with my son's first grade class and they had a blast. They were able to touch and interact with everything there.

This was a surprisingly nice museum and lots of hands on activities for the kids. It was a bit on the expensive side, but a nice place to spend the day.
