Owner description: With the mission "to ignite and sustain lifelong science and technology learning", the Saint Louis Science Center is one of the top five science centers in the United States, and has been named one of the Top 10 Science Centers for Families by Parents Magazine and one of America's most visited museums by Forbes Traveler Magazine. The complex includes over 96,000 sq-ft of interactive science-technology exhibits that are part of the Science Center's free general admission. The most recent major permanent exhibit is GROW, a one-acre outdoor exhibit that will take visitors on a journey of food, to gain a deeper understanding of our food supply. The Science Center's ticketed areas include the OMNIMAX, a four-story IMAX Dome theater; the James S. McDonnell Planetarium, one of the world's largest planetariums; and the Discovery Room, an activity area for families with younger children.

The fee structure for the museum lets you get in the door for free, then decide where you'd like to pay for extra experiences: special exhibits, movies, etc. You can spend just a few hours and not feel ripped off. Lots of new stuff in the last few years too.

What a cool & fun day trip for someone who hates Science!
You can tear through there pretty quickly if you aren't with kids. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Lots of things to view as well as hands on displays to play with for the kid in all of us. Great for families and couples alike!

This is a very interactive science museum with things for kids of all ages from the little ones up to Grandpa. They make science fun. Be sure to use the radars to check the speed of the cars racing under you on I-64.
