I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — the Museum of Science is one of my favorite places in Boston. It’s just such a great place to visit — for all ages. Seriously, where else can adults visit with children (even babies) and be just as entertained as them? Not many places. It’s also so massive that there can be a ton of people there but you don’t feel squished, overwhelmed, or annoyed (like you can at other tourist attraction in Boston…sorry, but it’s true!). I recently visited the museum with two of my sisters, Megan and Molly, along with my nephew Declan. Declan is one year old (he just celebrated his birthday on September 8th!) and he loved it. We walked all over, saw a live animal show, and visited the toddler room. He really enjoyed roaming around in that! (He also really enjoyed our visit to the Cheesecake Factory beforehand :)).
Another awesome thing about the Museum of Science is the IMAX Theatre. I LOVE it! They always have interesting movies playing. Colin and I saw one about Tornadoes there — Tornado Alley it was called.There was also a surfing film playing (last summer I think) that I really wanted to see and never got to. Such a bummer!

The kind folks at the Museum of Science recently gave me complimentary tickets to visit, but as always my opinions are honest, and my own. I really, truly do LOVE the museum!
