The Museum of Science in Boston is a great experience for young and old. You could easily spend 2 days here and not be bored for a minute! The Omni and Planetarium shows change frequently and are always great. There is a huge Van de Graff generator, and a great educator puts on an electricity demonstration that is not to be missed (except if you are scared of very loud noises and lightning!). The archaeology exhibits and the "living physics" demonstrations are also fantastic. Live shows are available throughout the day (my kids love the animal shows). Lots of interactive education!

This is a great trip for all ages. All of the exhibits have hands on elements. There are live shows everyday that my kids enjoy.

There are several exhibits that change often so there is always something new to see and do. My kids favorite part was watching chicks hatch and the Omni Theater films.

One day is not enough to see and do everything at the Museum of Science. My kids are always asking to go back again.

You could spend a whole day in one or two exhibits as a great part of a unit study. Several trips could be made for different unit studies for a very reasonable price if you become a member.
Our whole family LOVED the Rocky Mountain Express movie at the Omni Theater. It made us feel like we were really in the scenery. One son said "it was probably the saddest movie he's ever seen and it was filled with real life facts. I felt like I was missing something if I closed my eyes."

We are members of the museum as we have found that it is a great day for the boys, now 9. We can spend a whole day w/o seeing everything and with the exhibits changing we go back several times a year. We would go more often if it wasn't a 4 hour round trip.
So many different things for the boys to experiment with, experience, watch and learn from. Love the Museum of Science.
