  • This is a wonderful place for all ages. Everyone can learn from and experience the exhibits. Check out any special exhibit. Take at least a couple hours.  more »

  • There is lots to do in this museum, especially for children interested in science. Very hands on exhibits. We did not see everything. Nice small dinosaur exhibit.  more »

  • Great place to take kids. My 6-year-old loved it here, especially the dinosaurs and the musical stairs. So did I! We could have spent the whole day here, but it got really crowded and it was tough to get to a lot of the hands-on exhibits. If you can, I'd recommend going on a weekday. Will definitely return.
  • I absolutely adore the Science museum! So many fun, interactive exhibits. I have spent many hours wandering around. There is something to entertain everyone-and the views are spectacular!
  • 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.
  • The science museum is a fun place to go for adults and children. There are many exhibits to see and there always making it interesting because there's always something different its never the same thing. The omni theater is awesome as well as the staff that work there. I suggest people plan a visit to the museum its a good learning facility for everyone.
  • A fantastic learning destination for kids and parents alike, but plan on going elsewhere for lunch....really. Our kids enjoy almost everything about the Science Museum and there's a lot for them to do and see — but the food is terrible and extremely over-priced. Quite frankly, you'd be better off taking a short walk to some of the other restaurants nearby for lunch, and then coming back to finish out your day at the museum.
