Just have to go. So much to see, there is virtually something for everyone. Wear walking shoes, and bring cash for a snack or a gift.

The Pixar exhibit right now is so much fun, very educational, and very hands on for littler visitors. The layout and signage were a little confusing to follow when you're trying to navigate with a toddler in tow. Also, it's quite annoying that you have...More

The Science Museum of Minnesota provides hours of educational fun. Definitely worth the day trip. Personally attended to see the various skeletons and bones they have on display for an evolutionary comparative anatomy course, but I found the musical stairs to be exceptionally entertaining.

This was our first visit to the Science Museum. In addition to enjoying hands-on, interactive museums with the kids, we were drawn by the current Pixar exhibit. We were vacationing in the MSP area, and had read that this museum needed around 90-120 minutes to...More

This was a great place to bring kids and to explore if you're a kid at heart! There are several floors of interactive exhibits and many different things to take in. The cost was a bit expensive, but worth it for the time spent.

I went here for the Omnitheater. First off, there are no show times listed. The website just says the movie runs all day. So I park in the garage, but I really just wanted to park for an hour and see the movie. I walk...More

We went mainly for the Pixar exhibit. I wish they had had more characters in the exhibit and more things for young children to do. We were able to take a few photos with Buzz, Dory and some posters but that was about all the...More

We've been members at the Science Museum for a few years and have established a routine. We consistently enjoy the IMAX movies, especially during the IMAX festival each winter when the selection expands. One child really enjoys the Collectors Corner and is always on the...More

There are so many things to see and do. Kids just keep going from one thing to the next. Sometimes they are all excited and sometimes they just sit quietly and work on something. Very cool place.

We felt it was a little expensive for the amount of time we spent there (about 4 hours). However my kids (age 10 twins) really enjoyed how hands on this museum was! The "Sportsology " section was by far their favorite. Note that the Pixar...More

Yes! We left for lunch as well. You have a wristband. Try Cosettas down the street for lunch- it's awesome!

Cossetta's Italian deli. It's great Italian that is served cafeteria style. They also have a nicer sit down restaurant upstairs as well as a bakery and a market. My personal favorite is their raspberry tarts. And the... More
