Fun place to go for almost any age. The omnitheater is really fun. Lots of things to touch and play around with. No college discount though, which being a college student in a college town is something I look for.

This is a really nice museum! They always have changing exhibits and they have a great Omni theatre. I remember a few years ago, they had several Egyptian exhibits that were very interesting. They also have an exhibit where they make electricity, it is really cool. They have a lot of hands on things, and stuff to do for the kids. it's a great place to visit for all ages!

This museum is one of the best in the country. I love going there with my kids and seeing the exhibits. Yuo can park there or take the train. Admission is pricey but is worth it for a once a year seeing. There is always something different to do. The place is always crowded. Some libraries even give discounts to the museum. The museum shop is really nice place to buy souvenirs.

What a wonderful experience! I have not been to the Museum of Science since I was a kid and I recently brought my son there. I thought he would be a little young at six year old to enjoy himself. To my surprise, he was a great age. They had a cool senses exhibit where you could record your voice and listen to it. They also had a life six t-rex in the dino and fossil exhibit. The Museum of Science has something for everyone.

As a child I had gone to the Museum of Science many times and now that I am grown with children of my own, I find myself bringing them here time and time again. There is always so much to see and do that you can never really get sick of visiting. What I really like is the fact that there are so many hands on exhibits here. I would highly recommend to anyone planning a visit to the Boston area to make sure they plan a visit to the Museum of Science. You will be happy you did!

I grew up in MA, so I have been to the Museum of Science many times. This is really a city treasure. It is so much fun for kids of all ages! :) It is perfect for school trips, dates, family outings or a sightseeing stop on a vacation. There is so much to see and do in the museum - you can definitely spend an entire day (at least) exploring it!

There are many long standing exhibits that have been there since I was a kid, but they never get "old" - the museum is great because everything is hands on, so kids (and adults!) can really learn with all their senses.

The Omni Theater, in my opinion, is better than any IMAX theater, because it is a dome, so the image is actually all around you. It is a great alternative to seeing a regular movie, too, for a date night or a family night! (although the movies are generally much shorter than a full length film).

The electricity chamber (I can't remember the exact title!) is so cool! It freaks me out every time I see it (and I've probably seen it at least 10 times!).

They have a nice cafeteria and gift shop as well.

Highly recommend this place to everyone!

My family absolutely loves the Museum of Science in Boston. You can visit the exhibits, watch an IMAX movie, see a show at their planetarium, or see a lazar show set to music. They just opened a butterfly exhibit inside the museum and it's a must see. The plants are beautiful and the butterflies fly around the room you are in. It is both fascinating and educational. The museum also has a t-rex that is three stories tall, a place where you can watch chicks hatch and an indoor playground where kids learn about physics. That is just the beginning. You could easily spend a whole day here. I bet you'll want to go back again. Tickets are slightly expensive. It is $19 for an adult admission into the exhibit hall and $12 for children. You also have to pay to park. The IMAX movies, planetarium, etc. are extra. It is so worth the price. If you live in MA check to see if your local library has passes.

PROS: Awesome exhibits, lots to see, fun for all ages, educational
CONS: Pricey
