    The food court was reasonable and tasty. Love the interactive exhibits and shows. Don't come here first thing, start at noon and stay until after the camp and school groups go home.

    One of the best museums I've been to. A definite must visit with family and friends. They let you play with stuff and teach you awesome stuff. Worth the money, though Space Junk honestly wasn't.

    Get the Family Membership if you live in the Philadelphia area. It's a bargain; you get free admission to several museums around the U.S., discount tickets to IMAX along with free Planetarium shows!

    This is one of the best museums in the city. Great for kids. Great travelling exhibits. Imax is fantastic. Sci-Store is a lot of fun. Must check out the electricity exhibit and the giant heart!

    Наверное, лучший детский музей, который я видела! Помимо постоянных выставок есть сезонные, и все просто "бомба"! Провели 5 часов, с обедом в местной столовой, кстати, там вкусно)

    The Terra Cotta movie and exhibits are excellent. We quickly walked by the rest of the museum but had a hard time enjoying it due to the children running around like crazy w/little to no supervision.

    TERRACOTTA WARRIORS: engaging, well-paced, and so awesome to see a general, archer…and understand little details like why one had a padded collar to protect his jaw from the armor. The AR app was fun!

    It's a beautiful place to take the kids but save your pennies before you go. Certain exhibits aren't included in the admission price and it can make for an expensive day. $26 bucks to park!

    Even big kids like us love this science museum. We can't get enough of the astronomy tower, IMAX theater, and yes, giant heart. It's also where you'll find many Philadelphia Science Festival events!

    The "cradle of liberty" rocks a food festival, parades, and concerts. Arrive at the Parkway with a hoagie picnic by afternoon to get prime seats for the fireworks. - Green Guide Editor

    So much to do, wish I had allocated more time to do everything. Great museum. Children love this place, so much for them to explore.

    If you have kids, this is a great place to take them. However, if you're looking for a little more "grown up" type of museum, you might want to try the Academy of Natural Sciences.

    En az yarım gün sürecek muhteşem bir interaktif bir müze. Gitmişken kubbe ekranda IMAX film de izlemek lazım, planetariumda da film izlemek lazım. Biz çok etklilendik!

    Science after hours. Playtime for 21+. Be sure to get a ticket ahead so you don't show up and it's sold out

    Across the street from the Institute, you will see the ‘Aero Memorial’ by Paul Manship. If you look closely at the sculpture—near a fish and a swan you will find the portrait of the artist himself.
