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.
The exhibits were awesome! I can't wait to go back and finish exploring the rest of the museum.
The body world exhibit was really awesome and was totally worth going especially when I began to explore the rest of the museum. Also has a great view of the Charles River.
After paying $64.00 admission for 3 children and myself (no student rates or AAA discounts), the exhibits were a grand disappointment. I had been there about 10 years ago, and not much had changed. Exhibits were out of date and lacked any information in depth for exploration. A definite low point of my adventure to Boston, and my kids did not enjoy it, so save your money!
My husband and I went to see the exhibit Body World:2 yesterday. I'd heard great things about this exhibit, and from the little I could see, it looked like it was fascinating. However, this event was so over-ticketed that it was nearly impossible to see anything. I believe that the throng was actually dangerous...I shudder to think what would have ever happened in the event of a fire!
The MOS simply rocks! They have all types of interactive exhibits in addition to the "just look at it" type of exhibits that inculde every aspect of science you can possibly imagine. They sponsor educational programs, and offer the IMAX movies at a add'l cost (though I think that ticket holders should get some discount for a movie seen that same day).
Just don't eat at the cafe there. I strongly recommend against it - and this is after more than one bad experience. Walk over to the Galleria and eat at the food court or the Cheesecake Factory!
I actually really liked the Museum of Science. The attractions were interesting and captivated us all. However, it might be boring or unromantic for a parent without kids. The place was packed and it really does appeal to a child's mindset. I wouldn't pay General Admission to get in unless you have a family that love science. They have some animals inside--monkeys and baby chicks and a snowy owl. We got into the attraction with our Go Boston Cards so it was free because we already purchased the card before we traveled.
i think this place is so terrific , before we left we said we will be back again and again . so massive will need that long to tour it . fun educational and opened my eyes to many things , kids friendly senior friendly place. i have one tiny complaint need to maybe change around the eating place to massive manybe several areas would be better. kind of comfusing in the eating area. but dont get me wrong, i will be talking of this museum for a long time . and yes we will be back next yr.
it felt like u were in a place uve never dreamed of going to!!! the best time to go would be during the day and with family or friends and make sure u use ur time wisely and have fun. oh and its afordable so evrone can go so go on enjoy!!!
