“Educational Fun”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Located next to Hebrew University (02) 654-4888 M-Th 10-6, Friday earlier closing. Science-themed activities for all ages that are fun, fun, fun and very educational if the kids stay still long enough to learn. Limited free parking on site.
ASTC membership gets you in free, otherwise it is expensive. Plan a day here. The kids did not want to leave.

“The most hands-on science museum”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

I've been to many science museums with children and grandchildren and this is definitely the most hands-on! So many things of interest to children from toddlers through late teens. So much to do and see! Sometimes, they were so carried away, I had to say, "Let someone else have a turn." The staff is helpful. The children could have stayed ALL day!! And we were interested in most of it as well. :)
What a fun place to visit! The 10 year old said, "Maybe I should grow up to be a scientist!" It doesn't get better than that!

“Paradise for all ages”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

To take my grand-kids to the Science Museum in Jerusalem is a great experience, and I never know what will be the "hit" of the day. Last time it was crowded, summer vacation, but we found "our corner" with no lines to get hands on the displays, and there are many displays explaining the science of wonders around us. A lot to explore and learn from on all aspects of science, with explanations for all ages. Sometimes the text (Hebrew and English) are a bit long. So, this time we got "stuck" with the pneumatic mail, where we sent surprises back and forth, Allon was so happy and excited by the tube carrying the mail back and forth, and there are so many other things to get "stuck" on, the challenge is to avoid too big a crowd.
