Spend a couple of hours or the whole day at this hands-on museum that has something exciting for everyone. Touch a lizard, watch chickens hatching, see lightning being created and enjoy hundreds of other exhibits, where you can't help but learn something new about science and technology. Hold onto the edge of your seat at the IMAX movie theater, which costs extra.

Pretty cool place, different sections focus on different aspects of science. Love the Pop Culture history exhibit, definitely some great nostalgic items from classic movies.

Nice museum, beautiful view of the Charles River. Activities for all ages, but mostly the younger (PreK - elementary). My teenagers weren't as excited, but we did find activities that they enjoyed.

This place will need at least 2 full days to do it justice. Well planned, the museum has exhibits which strike a nice balance between explaining what is currently around, and the potential which can be unlocked by an application of scientific knowledge. Child friendly,...More

The exhibits they had were quite good and all fairly interactive. My only complaint is the size, it is a small museum in my mind. Glad I went though.
