  • Plan a half day to explore the exhibits upstairs and the planetarium. The basement holds a nerd paradise of mineral samples and taxidermy birds. Outstanding staff are never too busy to answer question...  more »
  • OK, it was a rainy day and I had a friend in from CT. We walked just a half block to the venue I took my children to when they were young (under age 10). Had not been to the North Museum in many moons...  more »
  • This small, full, museum is just a delight. I regularly take the wee grandchildren here. The two and five years olds love the movies. We have all learned so much from each one. Buy a year pass and jus...  more »

  • It was a nice day trip. 3 floors of stuff to see but over all was a small exhibit. The sci some is extra and each additional movie is $4.00. although the movies is informative to some (I knew this stuff already) the movie was short and dark. I kept want to adjust the brightness level like you do on your TV when the picture is dark. The gentleman who hosted the movie was great. Oh and due to letting light in once your in the movie and you leave it to say....go to the bathroom... you're not allowed back in. So do that stuff before you go it.
  • I enjoyed it. The upstairs art gallery was kind of a ripoff though. They had a small live animal section which was the best thing ever! They also have a small gift shop, which if you go you need to leave with a celestial buddy. They had cool science things, like a tornado machine, and it was fun to walk around and see the things. They also have toys in a couple different areas so if you're coming with young kids there'll be something to occupy them if they get bored.
  • I wasn't sure what to expect, but this museum was tiny! Despite the size, it is full of an array of really interesting stuff. Perfect for young kids and toddlers. I wasn't worried about them running off and getting lost. The cost for 5 people wasn't bad compared to other places, but considering how small it is, it is a tad pricey.
  • Field trip here..a bit unorganized..then after a movie in the dome (which seemed well below fifth grade science) the "science guy" was unable to answer half of the 5th grade questions. They have some interesting exhibits, but they took really, really long to ring up the kids gift shop items too. Staff was friendly.
  • I love taking the kids here to let their curious little minds learn. They love the animal exhibits !
