Great for younger and older kids. Many different types of exhibits. If you are lucky enough to come for the Pixar exhibit, do it! We used the light rail to get to the museum and it was only a short walk from the station. I...More

The Science Museum of Minnesota's temporary exhibit for the summer of 2017 on Pixar is a fascinating look into the making of Pixar movies!

The programs and Omni theater is a wonderful thing to experience. The theme changes in some rooms and the layout with the view of the river is beautiful. No ages will be disappointed. They also have catering, meeting rooms and restaurants

This is a wonderful place for all ages. Everyone can learn from and experience the exhibits. Check out any special exhibit. Take at least a couple hours.

There is lots to do in this museum, especially for children interested in science. Very hands on exhibits. We did not see everything. Nice small dinosaur exhibit.

We visited two years ago and were so excited to go back when we were in the Twin Cities again. This place is phenomenal! It kept us and our three kids (9, 12, 14) occupied for hours. We loved it so much that we decided...More

We visited on a Friday afternoon to view the Omnimax movie. The parking garage is convenient and the elevator takes you directly to the lobby of the museum. There was no line to get tickets to the movie. We visited the nice gift shop while...More

Does the ticket allow for re-entry? We would like to break for lunch and run back to our hotel to check on our dogs. Could we return after lunch? Thanks for your time! Mary

Yes! We left for lunch as well. You have a wristband. Try Cosettas down the street for lunch- it's awesome!
