I'm an adult with no kids and I still enjoy going here. Always fun and informative. Only this I don't like is there's always quite a few things "out of order".

We came mainly to go to the IMAX shows on the Int'l Space Station, but were amazed by the toothpick display of everything from characters in the Game of Thrones & Star Wars to world-famous buildings like Notre Dame Cathedral to Hagia Sophia in Istanbul....More

We went to the MOST for the sake of my 12-year-old granddaughter, but stayed for us! The hands on attractions were an entertainment we did not expect to enjoy as much as we did. We especially liked the ball machine, and stood and watched it...More

My visit to the museum did not last very long as I realized that the exhibits were designed for kids, as interactive displays. As an engineer, I also found that it only explained the very basic principles. So it seems to be quite popular for...More

Thank you so much for visiting the MOST! The museum greatly values the work engineers do each day within our community, and we encourage you to bring along "the next generation" of engineers on your next visit to discover, learn and play.

What I Liked About the Museum The toothpick sculptures were interesting, I suppose. What I Didn't Like About the Museum The Planetarium was very mundane, and not spectacular at all. The mouse car virtual ride was pretty low-tech as well. Nothing else even caught my...More

We visited with our grand children, ages 8-14. This museum is huge! You can easily spend four hours visiting the exhibits and going to the IMAX and planetarium shows. Personally, I'd skip the planetarium - it was pretty basic. The IMAX was well worth the...More
