First of all it’s very expensive. $28 per person to see everything and not worth the money.Visited with adult children and a two-year-old. Some of the exhibits were less than exciting, enjoyed the submarine tour, the movies were OK although one of us fell asleep....More

Very interesting exhibits. Theater is worth watching an iMax or other film. We saw Age of the Dinosaurs (or something like that). Very informative but a little hokey. A few rooms were closed. Planetarium was fun. Good value.

this is a great place to bring the kids, but a little boring for adults, however the movie theater is very good the parents or teacher who wants to show their students some great nature shows.

We are lucky to live in Philadelphia with the amazing Franklin Institute so when we have travelled to other cities we have been disappointed with the local science museum. But not this one! My kids are 10 and 12. They really liked the hands on...More

Not cheap! Cost depends on which of many options (movies, submarine, special exhibits,...) you choose.
