  • The museum displays different branch of Science-Biology, Anatomy, mineralogy, geology, etc. Many exhibits that awaken the child's imagination, helping him to develop an interest in science. You can sit in the cockpit of an airplane, helicopter, imagine yourself captain of a spaceship. There is a branch of medicine where a child of any age will find something interesting-sit in the ambulance, will examine x-rays, examine the structure of the human body. Admire the collection of minerals and natural wonder that is created. Big enough (for children) Wildlife Exposition: Scorpions, tarantulas, prehistoric crabs, turtles, crocodiles, sharks, otters. For children a great playground, where you can take a break for parents and for children a wonderful game of "making orange juice", where unfamiliar children easily become one coherent command: "oranges" is harvested from the tree, wrap them in boxes, carry in a juicer (which runs from torsion pedaling the bicycle), and so I was already a grandmother, but enthusiastically involved in this game. Thanks to the organizers of the Museum, all of which are so interesting to have thought of! Highly recommend!

  • Unfortunately many of the exhibits, like the Mars Rover, weren't working. We were planning to spend most of the day but only stay 2.5 hours. My 6 and 8 year-olds enjoyed the dig and the working model ...  more »
  • If you love science and family fun or just being a kid, you must visit. The Imax is great and there is something for everyone.

  • I took my children to the Museum of Discover and Science over the weekend and we all just loved it. My son loved the Technology and Flight exhibit and my daughter and I loved the Everglades exhibit. Being a child or an adult, it is amazing at how much you just don't know. The Museum makes it easy to learn about our world and ourselves. Going to a great museum to see, hear, and touch history & kinowledge if far better than reading it on a computer screen. I plan to take my kids back on a regular basis!
  • Kids love going here. Even after all of these years, they still try to keep the place refreshed and interesting. Kudos!
  • The turtle watch tour was amazing!!! Very interesting and good introduction in the museum. We could even enter the museum before the official meeting time and have a look around with only a few people around. Super cool atmosphere. The tour at the beach was so exciting and we were so lucky and could watch a turtle lay her eggs, cover her nest and return back to the ocean. Loved all about it and feel super happy and grateful!
  • Grew up with this place as a kid they have excellent programming for your young sxuentist with their Rub Goldberg entrance to their newly renovated IMAX theater showing nature and science documentaries this place is truly a place of learning and discovery. They have available parking and Subway so there is quick place to grab a bite. There's also the gift shop were you can take a little bit of science home with you.
  • I bought an annual pass which is a good deal if you go here more than once and gives a great discount in the Summer Savings Pass. The permanent exhibits are fun, but many areas need updating our replaced parts. The latest traveling exhibit is a bit boring, but science show and 7D movie are still my kids' favorites. I get free parking because I work in the area, but parking should be a consideration as well. $1.25 an hour or $7 for the day I think.
