Science Museum of Minnesota: For Kids Of All Ages

OK~ We recently had a nice visit to the Science Museum of Minnesota. What a cool place! I must say that kids of all ages, and I do mean that, would seriously enjoy this museum. I had my 17 year old son in tow and it was interesting to see how much he took in.

This is just one of several activity stations that were throughout the museum.

And a museum would not be complete without a dinosaur or two, right?

The Science Museum of Minnesota is located in St. Paul, right near the Mississippi River. A gallery dedicated to the Mississippi River is also very cool! It is fitting that the Charles E. tow boat is also available for guests at the museum to walk through.

Another cool thing to do while visiting the Science Museum of Minnesota is to schedule sometime in the Cell Lab. Kids that are school age and older are invited to wear white lab coats, eye protection and take on the role of a scientist. Cool stuff happening in the Human Body Gallery at The Science Museum of Minnesota.

If you are on a tight time schedule, I would recommend purchasing your tickets ahead of time online.  With so many events happening at the Science Museum of Minnesota, I would highly recommend becoming a member of the Science Museum of Minnesota. You pay a yearly fee and receive perks all year long!

Next time you are in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, be sure to put the Science Museum of Minnesota on your to do list! This is a place you will want to return to......so many unique exhibits and lots to learn! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

*My family and I did receive admission tickets to the museum. We did pay for our food and parking. I did not receive any monetary compensation for this post. The opinions expressed here are mine and nobody else's.
