Me and my sister were both very interested the whole visit. The shows in the planetarium are mesmerizing. Great for both kids and adults!

Would recommend to anyone of any age. My husband and I liked it more than my 2 kids did I think. Definitely plan on staying the whole day or you might not get through the whole place. So much to look at and play with. Amazing place if you love science and history. Food was okay and gift shop was a disappointment. Not a lot of selection for such a big museum like that. Parking garage is kinda expensive so prepare for that too..
What an awesome place! Hands on fun for my family. My kids are middle school and High school age and had a blast exploring this place. Heck I had fun exploring the exhibits! Parking was super easy and close! The food court area was chaotic, but that's to be expected in the summer in a big city. The food was great!
It was good. Our children (ages 5-17) loved it. Recommend planning on spending at least 5 hours to go through all the exhibits, or more if you watch any shows. Parking is a bit expensive, but on par with the city. Staff was nice. You can leave, and come back in with a handstamp.
Fantastic experience in this vast museum. There were so many hands-on activities for the kids but the explanations for each activity were direct and easy to understand. The museum was close to the T station and we spent more time there than we planned, because of the amount of interesting things to do. The food court was not very big but there were enough decently priced options for the family. This is certainly a place I would recommend for families.
This is really good museum. It’s pretty big and well designed. They have exhibits that cover a wide range of topics. It’s set up in a way that is very intuitive. There’s a few interactive games etc that are really cool. I think a wide range of ages will enjoy it. There is a store and a restaurant. There’s parking available, is very close to a T-station. We walked from our hotel and was an easy walk. The harbor is right behind it and the Duck Boat Tours go from the same place It’s big enough that we never felt like it was too crowded. Well worth visiting.
