  • If you visit MN especially in winter and want to go out and do something with the kids, this is a great place to go. Plenty of hands on exhibits. It gets pretty crowded on a weekend afternoon though.  more »
  • If you Love Science than you will Love this place. It’s a great place to take the kids and an even better place to go as an adult to learn more about science and refresh your mind.  more »

  • I've been to several science museums around the country (St. Louis, Portland, etc.) and this was, by far, the best one I have been to. Most science museums are geared more towards children. This one had a lot of activities for children, but there were also many exhibits that were adult friendly. You can spend a lot of time here, if you wanted. There is a café at the museum so you can spend a few hours looking around and then eat lunch. There are many interesting exhibits and displays I enjoyed the seeing the dinosaur bones and fossils. There is also a real mummy, which was very interesting to learn about.
  • Such a cool place! A must-do for anyone in the Twin Cities! Also, for those looking for a wedding venue- this is such a fun and unique option! I recently photographed a wedding here and it was such a blast! The staff did an amazing job and I had so much fun exploring the museum with the couple & wedding party for fun photo ops!
  • We took our kids to the Science Museum this week and was again amazed at the learning experiences for our kids. We try to go every year and our kids just love going. They learn something new each time we go. We love the tours and all the special exhibits. What a wonderful treasure to have in our Twin Cities metro area.
  • Excellent museum! My husband and I (late 20s) visited on a snowy day off. Plenty of “child” type exhibits, but PLENTY to see for adults as well. We highly recommend the hands-on bottom floor! The only complaint is the price. We didn’t get to see everything, but we can’t come back during this vacation because the price is a bit too high.
  • Love this place and it's great for all ages. Great exhibits and the whole family loves omnifest. A highly recommended destination for visitors and locals.
