The Museum of Science Has It All

The Museum of Science has been fascinating visitors since 1951. What started off as a humble meeting of the Boston Society of Natural History in 1830 has become one of the leading museums in the United States. Visitors of all age groups can come here to learn more about science and technology in innovative ways, complete with member tickets and hotel packages if you so choose. Over 700 exhibits offer something for everyone.
