Our granddaughter had the day off from school today so we decided to go to the science museum and she and we had a blast. Then watched the movie Extreme Weather. Wow was it great.

I've seen several movies here. The latest one, I saw, was Rouge One: A Star Wars Story. It's really awesome to see on the Omnimax screen. The best seats are near the top. They also have a large concession stand with a wide variety of...More

Christine G- We're glad you enjoyed "Rouge One" in its (recently ended) run in our IMAX dome-format theater. The wrap-around sight and sound experience is quite impressive. Come back to the Science Center again soon for the just-opened "Dream Big: Engineering Our World" or "Extreme...More

I purchased a membership so that it was more economical to take my 4 grandchildren to the exhibits and omnimax options. I had more tickets to use and took a couple friends to see the National Parks Show. It was a wonderful production, featuring a...More

The Imax theater is inside the Saint Louis Science Center. This is not a part of the free admission to the Science Center. It cost us $45 for two seniors and three children. Having been to other Imax theaters, I thought the seating was not...More

It was a very cool experience in a theatre like that! It is however very steep to walk up. So one must be careful not to trip going up the stairs.

I have visited this beautiful building many times. They change their attractions frequently and they are always of interest. Like a box of chocolates. "You never know what you are going to get". But it is always educational and very entertaining.

A group of 10 of us get together regularly from Church and in late January we all attended the OMNIMAX showing of Jerusalem. Although we all agreed the movie's content was very good in showing the antiquity of this city, it's complexity and it's diverse...More

Omnimax is a great visual experience -- better for shorter cinematic offerings, as the seats aren't too comfortable for anything longer. It's big, it's bold, it's an experience!
