What is there to do?

Science is made FUN at the Museum Of Science and Technology (MOST) in Syracuse, where kids can discover, learn & play across 35,000 sq ft of exhibits, immense IMAX films, out of this world planetarium shows and hands-on educational activities!

All of the exhibits at this popular museum allow kids to discover and learn something new. 

Stand out features include the Science Playhouse which looks like a kooky soft play adventure but actually offers significant scientific principles which can be learnt through play.

The Earth Science Discovery Cave allows kids to understand our planet and galaxy through understanding out own planet! Kids can learn about plate tectonics, how caves are formed, and how climate change affects us. Its a convincing life sized recreation for geological epxloration, including a Coral Reef Adventure tank, fossil pit and volcano walk.

Experience physics as you test your strength and coordination with the rock climbing wall, or learn all the inner workings of the HUBBLE telescope!

ROAR! It's Jurassic size fun with Dinomania, allowing kids to travel back in time to the age of the dinosaurs, or it's back to basics with the HAM radio! What would you do if all the internet and cell phones disappeared? This is a great example of exactly what!

Technotown is a kinetic wonderland guaranteed to make you ALL smile as you set the whizzing balls in motion.

Did we mention at the Museum of Science and Technology kids can also enjoy flight and motion simulators, an amazing planetarium AND an IMAX theater?
