You will love to visit this place,even if you live here in the city! The displays, and artifacts are always changing, about every month or so, so you never get board.

Birthday Fun Jul 12, 2009
My cousin and I went to the MOS in Boston for my birthday, and as usual we always have fun. This place is not just for kids, so no one should feel creped out walking around with no children. Some exhibits never change others do so visit the website to see what’s there. On this visit they had an exhibit on frogs, which I loved! The staff is friendly, and will gladly help you navigate through the museum. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop! They always have something interesting in there to touch or buy, including models and space ice cream. Some other things to check out are the Hayden Planetarium, and the Mugar Omni Theater. The Planetarium does laser light shows to music which is a good time.

Wildly entertaining and enlightening...Fun for the whole family! Nov 26, 2008
The Museum of Science is one of my favorites places to visit in Boston. Not only is it thoroughly informative, it is also tremendously entertaining.

There are so many exhibits, many being interactive, never mind loads of fun! Be aware that there is a general admission fee and then some special limited time exhibits are an additional fee to see. But they are always worth it.

The exhibits are too numerous to name so I suggest visiting the website at for a complete list, but a few that come to mind include an exhibit all about the human body, many different animals, dinosaurs. Then there are many exhibits dedicated to the world around us, technology, weather, planets, etc.. Every exhibit is extremely interesting and most encourage interaction.

Aside from exhibits there is also a Planetarium, a Laser Light show, simulator exhibits, live exhibits, and my favorite, the IMAX Omni Theater. The Omni offers about five different shows at any one time each lasting for a limited time and then a new collection of shows are released. If you are not familiar with the Omni Theater, it is a huge, five-story tall domed screen on which the world's largest film format is projected. The image fills your whole line of sight making you feel like you are right in the middle of it. That coupled with the state of the art sound system makes for an absolutely thrilling movie experience.

If you have the chance to visit Boston, spend a day at the exciting Museum of Science!
