I went here as a kid on field trips, then on dates in high school, and now with the kids and even their grandparents! Fun for all ages and the place is constantly improving and being updated. Can't wait to go back again!

This is a great place to bring your young school aged children. It is a hands-on experience in learning. Actually it is great for kids of all ages from 5 to 55.

Thanks for the great review! For your next visit, try parking in the lot directly behind the museum and through the underpass of the railroad tracks. Tell the worker that you're coming to the MOST, and you'll get a discount on parking! I hope this helps. Maria Welych Director of Marketing & Public Relations marketingdirector@most.org More

Lots of things to do hands on but could never seem to get near them because kids get on and don't leave. Definitely worth a visit.

Thanks for the great review! I see that you visited in June. May and June are our busiest months because we have a lot of school groups during that period, but they usually leave by 1 p.m. Hope you can try us on a day when we're less busy!

Museum of Science and Technology Armory Square Syracuse, NY made for a great afternoon outing for the grandkids from Babcia! It was a treat to watch an 11 and 9 year old get immersed in all the activities at the MOST! The robotics area was a huge hit. Climbing wall was also lots of fun!!! We have visited many times...

Its hard to say how lucky Armory Square is to have this ever-rotating exhibit, movies and events. Not just for kids, but they love it.

I went to the MOST with company visiting from NC over the Christmas holiday. It had been 2 years since my last visit and I was thoroughly impressed. We spent time with most of the exhibits on both floors. There is much more to do. The match architecture was mind blowing and the staff on the floor was wonderful. I'm... More

Fun fun fun, No shortage of things to do and learn. The membership is surprisingly inexpensive and the experience is worth a visit or membership. There is constantly change and new things to learn mixed with some physical challenge.
