Science made accessible. Lots of wonderful exhibits and hands-on activities, from space to the human body to..... The adjoining IMAX theater has amazing huge-screen films on a variety of subjects - from space travel to travelogues.

This is a phenomenal museum for kids in the heart of Expo Park. While some of the exhibits are worn, its still fun to see the Endeavor and associated exhibits. Its amazing that its free to the public.

I advise anyone that works there to recognize the fact that I am sueing my boss there for bringing a pack of beer and placing it in the refrigerator.

Went for the IMAX movie about Henry Bates which was educational and enjoyable. Checked out some of the exhibits inside before the movie. Always a good time here and next door at the natural history museum
