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 56,000 sq-ft of interactive science-technology exhibits that are part of the Science Center's free general admission. Opening in June 2016 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.

So much to do, learn, see and experience. From exhibits, to IMAX to planetarium - this place has it all.

It's an interactive science museum, even for me as an adult. The omnimax is awesome. Highly recommended .

“Not Worth It!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

There are several things wrong with this place. First you here that admission is free. Well that part is true. Now the parking is $10. To see any of the films is $5 each. Plus I would advise anyone that went there to eat first. We purchased a bottle of water--a bottle of water $3.86. That was a stupid move on our part. The food there is way over priced. By the time we left there it cost us $33.86. Never again. Not only that but the free exhibits were broken or dirty. Not worth the trip or money.

“Excellence for Family Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

There is nothing not to like about the Science Center. TREX robotic life size dino is a thrill for all ages! Educational, great gift shop, hands on for children. Be sure to do the walk across bridge that is a must!

“You will learn something”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The Science Center is a great place to bring the kids. This place is a great place for kids to learn about science and some of the displays are interactive. Parents...You may just learn something to.
