Fun place!

The MOST is a great day trip with the kids. Make sure to catch one if the IMAX movies! The rock wall is fun too.

My daughters (age 11 and 13) and I met my cousins and their kids (age infant to five) here on a Saturday afternoon in April. We've done many children's museums and have seen hits and misses. MOST was fantastic. We spent our time on the two levels of the main room. Exhibits on simple machines, human anatomy, earth sciences, flight,... More

This place is the best. I have 4 young kids and we all loved it. So many hands on activities for kids to do. Probably the best science museum I have every been to for kids. Loved it

I highly recommend the MOST to families. We (mom, dad, 10 year old, 9 year old) were unsure of what to expect but we spent a fun afternoon exploring the museum. We especially loved the playground, a great way to spend some energy. My son has Type 1 Diabetes and was excited to see the wall explaining what diabetes is... More

I took my 3 teenage daughters on a cold Saturday. There were a lot of people but it didn't seem too crowded. Even though my girls are older they all had fun. I challenge my kids to learn something new every time we go to a museum, but I don't think there was much geared towards their age group. I... More

Our group of four adults (2 middle aged and 2 young adults) enjoyed an afternoon visit to the MOST on a cold Sunday afternoon. While this isn't the largest science museum we've visited, there was plenty to explore for 2 to 3 hours. Our son, who is a middle school teacher, was particularly impressed with the hands-on exhibits. For toddlers... More

Educational for every one. I like the tooth pick buildings. railway exhibit, and hands-on exhibits. The written descriptions are simple for any child who can read. Adults can take time to explain to a younger child. Since some exhibits are not permanent, a visitor should take time to learn as much.

The Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) was a lot of fun and the admission fee was fair ($12 for adults and $10 for children and students). It is a large museum with displays and exhibits for all ages, and just about everything is a hands on experience. Some of the best exhibits were the laser maze, the rock wall,... More

This museum is very small compared with other science museums we have been to. We saw everything that interested our 10 and 12 year olds in under an hour and a half. The interactive rock wall was awesome. Many of the flight simulators were not working. I could see this museum capturing our attention more when our boys were younger.... More
