  • Park in the ramp kitty-corner to the Children's Museum for a deal. Spend the entire day here with your youngster. There is so much to see and do for everyone - even as young as a one year old. There a...  more »

  • Very cool place, great learning experience for children. Tickets were just under $20 for an adult but you can easily spend a couple hours there. The show I wanted to see sold out right as I got to the counter after waiting in a 40 minute ticket line, it was a Saturday afternoon though. I recommend buying tickets online, the $3 convenience fee dissuaded me from doing so on my phone as I was waiting in the line but in retrospect it would've been the right decision.
  • This is an excellent way to spend a day. It is incredibly interactive and informative. If you are willing to make a five-ten minute, you can find free parking on weekends.
  • The Science Museum of Minnesota is definitely a highlight of the Twin Cities! Becoming members will pay for itself in two visits, as it includes a free IMAX ticket each time. We thoroughly enjoyed the many levels of exhibits, including the interactive Sportsology ones. The higher levels also feature incredible views of the city and of the Mississippi River. There was way more than we could adequately explore in one visit, and we are already anticipating our return trip!
  • Costs and Scheduling Are The Worst. It's like travelling back to 1995 when no one was any good at online scheduling. My credit card got charged for the tickets, but then no confirmation. Do I have them? Will they be there when I show up? No way to know. They charge you extra for buying tickets ahead of time. Be prepared when you show up to pay a large amount of money for parking as well, something they don't mention online. One section of the site lists some things, another lists others, there's no section in your account for the tickets you bought. Just awful. Every few years I forget how awful it is, sign up for something, then am reminded.
  • Sunday March 5th 3 of us came to the Science Museum to go to a 3pm Omni show......went to park in the garage and were charged event price which was $15.00 ...we even showed the attendant our tickets to the show and we still had to pay $15.00....The show was good but I'll be thinking twice about coming back....I shouldn't have to check to see if there is an event in order to pick a date....scalped! :( Really want to give 1 star just because of the parking but did 2.
