One of the coolest places in the state. It's not the cheapest place to go but one of the most educational by far. If you have kids, make it a point to explore with them. There is a lot of knowledge to be gained but...More

Our family loves going to the MN Science Museum! We have an annual family membership and visit often. We have three children 5, 7 and 12. They all have a good time and there is always something for each age group.

If you visit MN especially in winter and want to go out and do something with the kids, this is a great place to go. Plenty of hands on exhibits. It gets pretty crowded on a weekend afternoon though.

If you Love Science than you will Love this place. It’s a great place to take the kids and an even better place to go as an adult to learn more about science and refresh your mind.

It’s always fun to go to the science museum, but I especially love watching the movies on the 90’ screen.

Visited with wife and two young sons (1 & 3). We had to come here as our son is at the dinosaurs/trains stage of life. All sorts of things to keep children and adults doing, seeing, and learning for a day. I recommend eating before...More

You can call the museum during business hours and they will take your info over the phone and set it up for you. What a nice gift idea!
