    Buying an exhibit ticket comes with a ticket to explore the rest of the museum with an expiration date of a couple months.

    There was alot of cool exhibits and fun things to look at.

  • Sahil K.

    A couple cool exhibits, but not really worth the price of admission.

    Most of the displays look outdated. Needs a makeover. The Butterfly Garden should be visited but don't expect much, just a corridor with huuuge and beautiful butterflies :)

    perfect place to learn, but will be better without family and kids!

    It's not what I remember as a kid on field trips. There seem to be fewer interactive exhibits, and more words written on posters you're supposed to read. It's definitely not worth the huge cost.

    Sean Rourke · December 7, 2014
  • Mia

    Sooooo big! Go to the human life exhibit, it has a fun interactive piece!

    Mia · November 25, 2014
  • Alexey S.

    Laser Michael Jackson is a must see

    Alexey Sadovoy · November 16, 2014

    The membership is absolutely worth it. $80/year and regular admission for adults is $20-ish, which means the membership is already paid after 4 (solo) trips in a year or 2 (duo) trips in a year.

    Tammy · October 16, 2014

    Huge place, tons of stuff the kids loved

    Great humane exhibition

    Treat yourself to an amazing show at the planetarium. It is not to be missed and is a lot of fun. Their advanced 'Death Star' projector is able to project more than 9,000 stars onto their screen.

    Everything is good here but be sure to give yourself plenty of time. The parking charges are a bit high but other then that I loved it.

    Teeming with children, no smoking or cocktails allowed anywhere. Horrible place.

    3rd floor 3-d photos of Grand Canyon and Mt Everest are amazing

    There are great exhibits for kids, and teens will love the laser shows. Visit the site for more information. Search “laser” for info on the laser schedule or special events. Read more

    With over 500 interactive displays, the Museum of Science in Boston has plenty of activities to keep people occupied for hours.

    "Dead Sea Scrolls: Life in Ancient Times" is on display through October 20 showing one of the greatest archaeological finds ever - the Dead Sea Scrolls containing the oldest known texts of the Bible.

    BU Today · August 9, 2013
  • Jenn B.

    Dead Sea Scroll exhibit is totally worth it! Although, plan on an extra $15 per person w/o audio guide. No need for the aud guide though--so much to read!

    Jenn Batore · August 7, 2013
  • Jeff B.

    Awesome stuff for all ages, but there are always a ton of kids. Look at the computer place.
