  • Many nice things, but I ws alone without my kids, and it's really only made for children age 5-12. Shame! 
  • Went with a girlfriend, children children love. A lot of interesting stuff. The aim of the campaign was to watch a movie dedicated to the centennial of the United States national parks in IMAX. Film fascinates with stunning nature and natural phenomena. Plus the United States's largest spherical screen, which creates the illusion of full immersion and merging with nature. Very impressive richness and diversity of the national parks, which are carefully preserved for future offspring

  • Yet I actually saw a few things that were there during my last visit when I was in junior high school in 1975... the ginormous grasshopper, for one. Does a huge plastic cutaway insect really have that...  read more »
  • Great for family with kids. The Museum's mission is to play a leading role in transforming the nation's relationship with science and technology. I always loved to bring my son here, he has so much fun! We have membership since he was a baby and it's the best money we spent. A lot do kids to play and learn always something happening. 4 stars because the food here isn't good and expensive. You have to pay for parking. Recommended length of visit 2-3 hours.
  • How could you not love it here!? Watching my daughter, her friends and countless others learn is inspiring. The IMAX theater & Planetarium are wonderful. Butterfly Garden mediocre. The only thing truly not incredible here is the food. Cafeteria = terrible & expensive. Pack a lunch.
  • This is one of these good science museums that I've been to as a kid. Haven't been in two years but there are good exhibits that are fun and entertaining. Also the iMac features are cool too! Also a place to get duck tour tickets. Food court is great too.
  • So much to do here. 3 floors jam packed of hands on, informative learning for all ages. I suggest planning to have half a day to be able to see everything, because there's so much! Great attraction in Boston.
  • Fun for both kids and adults. While the appeal of this place is mostly aimed at the younger audience, there are some interesting exhibits that could appeal to all ages. When I visited, I found the Butterfly Garden to be fascinating. The Van de Graaff generator always made for a fun show.
