Museum of Science

Science and technology come alive at the Museum of Science! Experience the power of discovery through more than 700 interactive exhibits accented by an ever-changing cavalcade of touring exhibits, watch a film projected onto New England’s only IMAX® Dome screen, rocket through a universe of stars in the Charles Hayden Planetarium, experience indoor lightning storms in the Theater of Electricity, surround yourself with beautiful creatures in the Butterfly Garden, or take off on an adventure in the 4-D Digital Cinema!

Experience engineering first-hand at our new exhibit Behind the Scenes where visitors get to help us test out new exhibits! Or celebrate Greater Boston-based innovations and the creators behind them at Wicked Smart: Invented in the Hub and see why Massachusetts is ranked the most innovative state in America!
