Museum of Science
With a planetarium, an IMAX movie theater, and a two-story Van de Graaf generator capable of producing 2.5 million volts of electricity, the Museum of Science is truly impressive. Children love the interactive discovery center, live animal exhibit and the dinosaur exhibit with fossils and life-size models. These and the hundreds of other exhibits make this museum, one of Boston's top attractions. This educational and entertaining museum is perfect for the whole family.
We have had a membership for about 5 years and we just keep going back. We have 3 kids (now 6-14) and there is something for all of them. We go about 4 times a year and with the free passes that come with membership and the membership discounts it more than pays for itself. Also with the convenient parking garage and lockers we can bring our own lunch and not spend a lot of money when things are tight. The Discovery center has a great area for kids 5 and under but also has hands on info downstairs and up that our older kids enjoy as well.
I know that when I take my 16 yo son to the Museum of Science, since he was ~6yo, it inspires him to look on to the present and future. I believe that I have inspired him to a life of science and a good education. I work in the medical field and feel that I communicate with this teenager all that much more knowing that we have a common theme. When I was 14yo I went on a trip to Bookhaven National Laboratory. An experience I remember to this day. Thanks for giving us the communication we so much enjoy.
Naturally, we enjoy the exhibits, and they museum always impresses with new and interesting treasures. My kids loved the frogs, but "Cliff" was the show stealer, and Stephen, the amazing host in the fossil exhibit, kept 3 little boys coming back for more with interesting stories about fossils and dinosaur teeth. Best way to spend an afternoon with your family and really see your kids giggle and smile and have a fantastic time. Worth every cent.
With two adults there so we can split for age and interest this museum is a phenomenal and stimulating experience. The kids didn't even realize how much they were learning they were having so much fun. My 4-year-old's favorite is the waterfall play table in the preschool area where we played while my 8-year- old did an awesome Scavenger Hunt competition with his Dad. (pre-register for that and Night at the museum sleep overs.)
My son & I have been members since he was very young. There have been so many cool exhibits and activities over the years we have to keep renewing. Even though we are a family of 2 we have membership for 5 so we can bring more guests - especially to special exhibits and the free members only nights!! Now that my son is 21 he shares the museum and shows with his college friends and I have been turning on many new people to the MOS experience. I highly recommend the exhibit halls, omni theater and laser shows - membership is very reasonable and gives you tickets for all these things and many discounts. I am a big fan!!!!
I had spent a lot of time at the Museum growing up. My brother and I always loved it. I knew my 8 year-old would enjoy it, but I was caught off guard by his complete fascination with almost every exhibit! We'll be back!
