    Awesome displays and learned a lot even at my advanced years...The iMax movie on National Parks was spectacular and the sound track was great. If you're in Boston don't miss it!

    I kinda feel like science museums are really just reflagged kids museums. Regardless, our kids had a blast with the experiments and displays. Worth a visit.

    Most of the displays look outdated.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 :)
