Museum of Science Boston – I’m sharing photos from our trip to the Museum of Science in Boston, MA. (50 photos)
Museum of Science Boston
Hi Everyone, today I am sharing a photo diary of sorts from our recent trip to the Museum of Science in Boston, MA. For the past couple weeks we have been up in the New England area visiting with family, seeing my Grandfather before he passed away and then going through the funeral process and generally just having a long stay with family.
Please enjoy the photos from our day trip. We spent 6+ hours at the museum and had a fairly complete visit seeing all the exhibits without seeing any shows. I will continue my commentary and stories below in between the photos.
This is the view from the parking garage which is an amazing view of the “Salt and Pepper” bridge, named because of the towers that are shaped like salt and pepper shakers.
I haven’t been to the museum since I was a teenager. I think the last time I went there was in high school and I don’t quite remember. I went there a lot since I grew up in the area North of Boston and went to high school in Boston.
It is seriously one of the most comprehensive science-oriented museums and has so many impressive exhibits for kids that break down concepts in interactive ways. I was very impressed seeing the place as an adult and it was really neat to bring my own children there. I had the sense of things coming full circle.
The exhibits sparked curiosity in my 4 year old daughter and I feel that she learned so much just from the one day visit.
My cousin has a family membership and we were able to go with him for free! I am so thankful for the opportunity. It really makes me want to bring my kids to other Boston-area museums like the Children’s Museum and the Boston Aquarium.
My son, who is very easy going, was able to nap in the stroller in the afternoon as we toured through the museum. I brought all their snacks and stuff in a large diaper bag so we were prepared for the day.
We had lunch at the cafeteria (but you can bring in your own food too) and went back once more for ice cream and coffee (a much needed pick-me-up) before we left.
I found the museum to be fun for all ages, there was plenty to do and see there for my kids and myself.
It was interesting to see what the kids gravitated towards. I saw my daughter was very into any problem-solving or engineering type of exhibit.
In the “Discovery Center” there is an area just for babies which I LOVED. Marc got a chance to interact and crawl too.
This trip he has made so much progress with his crawling and cruising. I found this exhibit to encourage that.
It seemed like we spent hours just in the Discovery Center; I would say it was one of the highlights.
It was helpful to bring a baby carrier along too.
They had attendants that explained things and worked with my daughter and my cousin’s son so I could focus on my son in the baby area.
This is the older part of the museum where they have animal displays but it’s also one of my favorites.
I highly recommend the Museum of Science Boston to anyone with kids and adults alike. This place is so much fun!
Thank you for reading and following along. Best, ~Sara
