Science Museum of Minnesota in St. Paul

Science Museum of Minnesota

120 W Kellogg Ave, St. Paul, MN.  800-221-9444.  www.smm.org
Exhibits only:  $11 adults, $8.50 Senior 60+ and Child 4-12, 3 and under free.  ASTC membership reciprocity.  Pay parking available.  Stroller accessible.  Restrooms available.  Cafe on site.

The Science Museum of Minnesota gets mixed reviews from us for being child-friendly.  The river exhibit on the main floor is good for kids, but a lot of the hands-on exhibits on the lower level are geared more to older students.  The traveling exhibits and Imax shows change often, and some are more child-friendly than others.

We always learn something when we go to the science museum, but there are other places in the Twin Cities that we prefer to take our young children.

There is now a “preschool playdate” program on Mondays that we might try out, and it has reciprocity with Minnesota Children’s Museum members for that program.

I really liked the part with the pipes that go twirling up in the museum in one of the exhibits and it makes pipey music.
