Not too long ago I visited the Boston Science Museum. It was a lot of fun. As soon as you walk in you can tell that there is a lot of interesting stuff to do. It's a little bit expensive for a museum, I don't remember exactly how much it was, however it was well worth it.
As soon as I entered the first exhibit on Math (not exactly my favorite subject) I was in shock. It was actually interesting and fun. Who thought math would get me excited and interested? This was the case throughout the whole museum. Pretty much everything there was fun. There was an exhibit on gears and motors which was really fun and a lot of interactive exhibits.
This museum would be great for anyone, but especially kids. There are endless amounts of things for children to do at the Boston Science Museum. There's a butterfly exhibit where the butterflies actually can land on you which is a wonderful thing for kids to do, as well as adults. The IMAX theater is also a thriller that everyone loves, not to mention the lightening show that is put on every few hours (it's pictured above).
The Boston Science Museum is a great place to go! You should visit if you're ever in the Boston area.
