The museum is large and offers many hands on exhibits. They also have two theaters, one an OmniMax with Journey to the So Pacific and the other with The science behind Pixar. The movie schedule changes so best to check before you visit.

Went to the Science behind Pixar, for the MPR sponsored Social Science which allows you to roam the museum if you are 21 and up one night every month. We had so much fun having a date night there with music and different fun stations!...More

The Pixar exhibit is world class, the dinosaur section is very well designed, and the crackpot medical exhibits are such fun!
