  • Honestly I was decently surprised when I visited. The staff is exceptionally friendly right when you walk in, and the exhibits, while small, were laid out well and informative and interesting. It has a great history of the entire region in contrast to other museums where it jumps from location to location. I think the air conditioning was malfunctioning on the second floor, but that's a minor issue. I'd recommend it's worth at least one visit, and it's not geared only to children.
  • This is a place you have to take your family to. It doesn't cost much and it helps to expand your child's imagination through science. It simply is the best place in Rochester to go to.
  • A great all-around science center right in Rochester. I have been to others, including Toronto, and Rochester really competes. There are so many things to do. Fun and educational for the entire family.
  • What a hidden treasure! So many cool exhibits for kids and adults to enjoy! Would highly recommend a season pass and make several trips!
  • The RMSC staff goes out of their way to make every experience fun for the kids and pain free for the parents. They make the museum and its activities easily enjoyable!
