Spend a couple of hours or the whole day at this hands-on museum that has something exciting for everyone. Touch a lizard, watch chickens hatching, see lightning being created and enjoy hundreds of other exhibits, where you can't help but learn something new about science and technology. Hold onto the edge of your seat at the IMAX movie theater, which costs extra.

If you are visiting Boston, set aside an entire day for this excellent museum. Take advantage of the science shows, the planetarium and the movie theatre.

They had a lot of things to do, real fun, great, clean place. Bit pricey like all museums are. The electricity show was fantastic. They taught information in a fun slick way that kids wouldn't feel as boring.
