Museum of Science Information

Museum of Science - Museum in Boston.

The Museum of Science (MOS) located on Boston’s scenic waterfront has been educating generations of citizens about all aspects of scientific pursuits for almost two centuries. Founded originally as a natural history museum in 1830, it underwent a major overhaul in 1951 to concentrate solely on science, the first museum in the US to do so. Today, the three-story building features over 500 interactive exhibits, and also houses a planetarium, a butterfly garden, a 3D digital cinema, a simulator, and an IMAX theater showing both educational and popular films. Daily live presentations at The Museum of Science allow visitors to catch a show on a variety of topics from optical illusions to juggling, or even immerse themselves in the performance in the “hands-on laboratory.” In addition to the reoccurring shows at The Museum of Science, the museum also hosts a plethora of special events, such as sleepover nights for school aged children, book club meetings, lectures, tours, and community forums. For guests who would like to take a tour of the city after their museum visit, the MOS acts as one of the launching points for the popular Boston Duck Tours, and combo tickets are available.

Fun for All!

Apparently the Museum of Science in Boston is one of the best in the country and I can see why. My friend got us a free pass to go after 5PM and in the few hours that I was there, I got to see so many amazing exhibits! No matter what age you are, there will be something cool for you to do. Depending on what time you go, there are also live presentations for free! You can also take advantage of the planetarium and the IMAX theater while you're there if you're willing to shell out a few extra bucks. I got to watch an IMAX movie about adrenaline rushes and that with the setup of the theater, I felt like I was right there in the action. Admittedly, the screens are so big that I got a bit dizzy looking at everything but no matter where you sit in the theater, it's a great view. Even if you're not a science geek, this place is well worth it!
