Kids love it, they can play here for hours and hours. Lots of very interesting ideas which make the kids think how did they do that and invite them to try it out as well.

Well done.

Fun place, makes you think about a lot of stuff. Fun for the kids to learn and figure things out about how things work.

We like mars probe and underwater sub. Can easily spend the day then hit one of San Jose's downtown restaurant's or head over for a drink at a nearby hotel across the street.

Highly recommend. This museum is a really nice place to visit, specially if you are into tech stuffs. Also, don't forget to visit the IMAX theater. IMAX is a great experience, if you have never watch movie in one before.
By the way, for those who don't know, you can get a discount card from the library, which let you buy an ticket to the museum at $3.

PROS: IMAX, tech stuffs, and a lot more, go there and find out for yourself
CONS:

If you are ever bored and don't know what to do or if you want to take your kids for an educational experience go to the tech museum. They have fantastic interactive displays that will knock your socks off. If your company ever gets a chance to rent the museum out for a corporate event it is really fantastic. They also have an Imax theater - what an experience in movie viewing.

This is a great place to take children ages 7+. Most of the science exhibits are hands on and they really explain things in an age appropriate manner. Hours and hours of fun is had at this museum. When you're ready for a break, walk on over to the IMax theatre for a big treat!

The exhibitions were creative and interesting. We designed a rollercoster, designed a bike and had 3D photos taken of the family. Lots of tech history. We also went to the IMax and saw a great movie on the Mars rover. Everyone had a fun afternoon; we're likely to join as members as there was too much to see in a few hours.

Very educational, of course San Jose of all places needs a tech museum! Its pretty big and well packed with things to do, its not just looking at tvs. You can interact and do a lot of things, bring the kids they will love it. A lot of school groups come here. I came in on a free pass I got somewhere, so I cant comment on how much it cost. I think its around $20 per person, but its worth it at least once. Standard in-city- so not a lot of parking available. Not too busy, so its not crazy in there. I like that they change up some of the exhibits and movies, so its has some replay value

If you are looking to take ur children for a trip and teach them at the same time...u might want to consider taking them to the Tech Museum!!! It's a wonderful place bursting with science experiements that u can try out yourself. after you have had a science lesson, u can go ahead and enjoy a movie with your family at the IMAX theatres!!! Must try out the jet-pack chair!!!!!

The Tech Museum has really developed in recent years. With multiple stories each crammed full of exhibits, you can learn about subjects as varied as bobsledding to modern surgery. Be sure to check out the IMAX theatre and the robot that draws faces if you can. Last time I was there they had a Segway you could try out, but that exhibit may have been rotated out.

I can't count how many time that I have been here. There are so many interesting exhibits and it is easy to spend hours just browsing around or doing some hands on experimenting. In addition, they have one of the largest IMAX domes which often shows very educational and entertaining films. Finally, everyone can see what Silicon Valley is about!

This is another one of those places for your kids to learn. You can really spend a few hours here learning about the environment and just how things work. They have an IMAX theater (which costs extra) where they can show you an educational type video. On weekdays they have many schools coming here. Sometimes parking can be kind of hard, but youre bind to find a spot sometime.

The Tech Museum Of Innovation is a great place for all family. Every family member can have fun here, It is both educative and fun. I like to bring kids here. They also have a IMAX theater so you can also watch movie here. Parking is a lttle difficult but you should come here if you have kids.

I went to the Tech Museum back when it was still called the Garage. It offers a great variety of exhibits which meticulously record the history of the tech industry in the Silicon Valley. There are many hands-on exhibits and the museum is constantly adding to its collection to accommodate the ever-changing tech industry.

This is a fun place for some family relaxation. People of all ages should be able to find something to do here, although the focus is mainly kids. Many of the exhibits are hands on, and we all know how much kids enjoy those. I think one of the most liked is the rollercoaster simulator. Parking is hard sometimes but it shouldnt ever be THAT bad, just pay a small fee. Have fun playing kids!

This is a great place for children who are innovative, tech-savvy, or just want to learn more about how things work and operate. There is even a food court to sit, eat and enjoy. However, the store gift shop is extremely expensive.

The Tech museum is a must go that will appeal to all family members. Every age group should be able to find something there to play with. If you have a budding scientist or engineer in the family, they will especially enjoy the Tech. The permanent exhibit highlights are the roller coaster design/simulator, the robots and the human body model. Don't forget the IMAX showings which periodically show first run movies in the IMAX format.

The Tech Museum should not be called a Museum, because it is so fun and hands on. The entrance fee is a couple of bucks and worth it for the learning experience and fun. They have openned up a IMAX theatre and more experiments. The gift shop isn't too expensive and has scientific things for sale.

Parking is hard to find, but aside from that everything is fabulous.

The Tech Museum in downtown San Jose is an interactive museum where kids can experiment with different types of technology. This place was a blast for my little nephew and niece. You have to pay a small fee before going in but it's definitely worth it. This museum is big, and your kids would love it because it's so fun; they also learn a lot of stuff while having the time of their lives. Here, they have an IMAX theatre so you can come here to watch a movie too.

The Tech museum is well worth visiting. Not a great place for little kids, they'd no doubt get bored pretty quickly, but teanagers and above would have a blast. The theater inside the museum is unbelievable. Before the show starts you get to see the workings of the theater (speakers/lights, etc.) They show some great movies (mostly documentary). You need to get there early, the theater is fairly small, but it is worth the wait.

I brought my little cousins here and they had the time of their lives! No matter boy or girl, this museum has something for everyone. The word "museum" doesn't even seem to describe it welll, for it is more like a huge multi-level playground for kids. Everything is hands and and kids can play with all sorts of gadgets and devices from the old to the latest scientific innovations. The "Idea House" is genius, it allows kids to use their creativity to the max, encouraging them to build upon their ideas.

PROS: best place to bring your children
CONS: closed on holidays and other days of the year, call first.

We don't have bus tours of Silicon Valley, but you can see it all at The Tech Museum! Good historical perspective as well as up-to-date exhibits on current technology.
