Keep in mind while you read this, that I wanted to put this in the tourist trap catagory, but thought you would look here for real information on the Museum of Science.

If you don't have kids - skip this place. Granted, this is probably the largest science center I have ever been in and the most impressive. However, I don't see how anyone could see the whole thing in just one day. After three hours of walking around and not being able to do any of the experiments, our feet were certainly paying a price.

While the museum of science surely is designed with children in mind, don't plan on actually DOING most of the experiments or any of the really fun ones, because the crowds around each will turn you off. We happened to be there on a Tuesday morning in April, which isn't even the tourist season, and the place was packed. So if you do go bring your patience and the most comfortable pair of walking shoes you own.
