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.

My husband and I decided to visit the Museum of Science because it was in the negatives outside. It was the best decision. It's $25 per adult, plus an additional cost for the IMAX and Planetarium. We arrived around 10:00 AM and purchased exhibit tickets...More

A very interesting and innovative museum with so many interactive learning stations. The Omni theater show is a must visit.You are going to love the music stairs and the 20-foot-long Tyrannosaurus rex model. Also you can attend live experiment shows and explore the butterfly collection.

One of the best museums I've ever been. Very interactive, when I've realized, I was already there for 6 hours. Great for children also, with a lot of options for them. Don't go if you only have a couple of hours.

My advice is to call the Museum of Science and ask them. I believe the GO PASS covers the exhibit hall admission but does not include the entire price for other areas such as the butterfly garden, the theater or the... More
