  • My husband and I went to the movie about the National Parks. This omni theater really helps you see BIG. I recommend you sit up higher as it is easier to look down to see the entire screen instead of ...  read more »
  • Great place to take kids, especially to see an Omni Theater show. So much to learn and see. A must do if you have time. 
  • Location is perfect in St. Paul MN, offering wonderful views of the Mississippi River. And, it is a convenient walk to the center of the city and Rice Park. Mississippi River National Park center is a...  read more »
  • This place has tons of interactive exhibits, the layout is separated in different levels but it is very well organized. It looked like they were updating some sections in the prehistoric area but everything else was vey well maintained. It was a great place to stay during the rain and in 4 hours I was able to see and read about 95% of everything. Would definitely recommend visiting. Great for children and adults
  • The Science Museum is never a disappointment! My favorites are the musical staircase and the optical illusion theatre (though they may have swapped that one out). The last time I was there, I was chaperone for a school group and we went in the group entrance on the river side of the museum; I found the iguana statue that I loved as a kid! I've also recently enjoyed eating lunch and listening to the seismic chimes. However, the criticisms I hear most often are concerning the Omni theatre... I don't often get an Omni ticket, so that might have an impact on my museum experience.
  • the science museum has always got something very interesting going on. the displays are always stunning and you have a great opportunity to learn a lot. however, I have had the great pleasure of working with the science museum on a few different occasions and honestly the employees there are so much more interesting than their artifacts. these people are brilliant minds with such colorful backgrounds and such intriguing stories. I love this place for so many reasons. a great way to spend a day.
  • Poor customer service staff made us feel like we were bothering them when getting tickets. VERY hard for handicapped person to use the theater. The whole staff could have cared less if we were there or not. The National Park movie was a joke, better shows on National Geographic channel, save your money. Bad show,crappie employees.....not worth the hassle...
  • For an educational day with with the kids, you'd have trouble finding a better choice. Lots of interactive exhibits will draw curious minds young and old into the fantastic science on display. For more of a "lean back and relax" time, the full IMAX theater offers a truly immersive experience.
