    Very amazing museum, best I've been to! I would recommend the IMAX and Lightening Shows, they're insanely awesome! The food there is great at the Cafe, along with friendly volunteers and staff!

    Over a decade ago, the US Department of Energy installed a wind turbine at LSC to demonstrate the feasibility of using wind as a source of energy in urban areas. Check it out from the 4th floor deck.

    It's a great place to visit with so many exhibits. They did a nice job on their Skyscraper! Achievement and Impact tribute. LSC is a fun interactive science museum for all.

    Long lines and big crowds on rainy days. You can skip the line by buying tix on your phone and pick them up at the welcome counter IF you can navigate their mobile site.

    Do NOT do the interactive movie. A DVD movie carried to a classroom(theater) and played for you to watch a child's movie. The most interaction you get is putting the seat down to sit.

    This zany science museum is home to the first Hoberman sphere. Though geared toward littles (the calendar is packed with interactive learning events), it brings out the childish nerd in any adult.

    Incredible spot for kids and adults alike. Worth becoming a member, but I hate the fact that I have to pay for parking every time regardless. Kinda weak.

    $7 parking even for members since lot is not owned by the center.. But overall, a good value for the kids! Plenty of fun learning. Place is huge!

    Definitely take the time to watch an IMAX or 3D movie, but check show times before you come; they're different weekend vs weekday.

    When in the Skyscraper exhibit, make sure you know the difference between the Curtain Wall Test and the Wind Tunnel Lab. Curtain Wall is the one you go in and sit!

    Start at the top and work your way down. See an IMAX movie. The cafe is a bit expensive as you might expect, but a nice selection beyond burgers and pizza. Read more

    Don't watch a legit movie in this IMAX, the seats are beyond uncomfortable and the resolution is distorted on standard camera filmed scenes. You're better off going to AC or Lincoln Square
