Great way to spend an hour or the day! Great annual pass and you will never regret it. Well worth the money. Adults and kids love it. Have never been bored there

Recently revisited the museum after a long break and I am overjoyed to see that it still has the type of quality, entertaining content that inspires children to have a life-long interest in the sciences that I remembered.

Great museum filled with science exhibits that periodically change. Most are interactive as well. Included with standard admission is an IMAX Dome movie.

Spent the day at the most with 4 grandchildren and what an enjoyable experience. Some of the displays are clearly dated, but all in all a very enjoyable experience for the kids to learn. Great way to beat the heatand habe a fun family outing.

We go to MOSEI from time to time as it is close to where I live only 40 miles. They have fun things to see all the time like King Tut.

This museum is a little dated, but rumors of it moving abound. Good location at the moment. Wonderful outdoor garden, interesting butterfly exhibition, fantastic dinosaurs. And the IMAX theatre is a real plus.

I took my 2 young adult children here and they loved it! It was really fun to play in the kids part and see all of the exhibits. I would definitely recommend getting here early so you can see the whole museum.

Nice science center. Three adults visited it for about 2 hours after spending the day at the Lowry Park Zoo. Definitely geared towards children such that they would have a blast. Not much more than 2 hours for adults unless you attend the IMAX movie...More
