Museum of Science Boston

This landmark of Massachusetts is located in Science Park which spans the Charles River. It offers hundreds of interactive exhibits along with live presentations and shows. The mission of the museum is to be at the frontline in transforming the relationship of the nation with science and technology. It is part of Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and a home to more than 100 animals. Most of these animals have been rescued and rehabilitated from different situations. In addition, the museum is one of the three bases of the city for Boston’s Duck Tours.

Here, you get the opportunity to explore and learn about the science and technology that is used in the production of popular animated films and their characters. The interactive exhibition showcases STEM concepts that are used by the computer scientists and artists in creation of the films.

You get to see engineers from NASA as they work on today’s hottest space missions. You can also get a feel of the enormous James Webb Space Telescope, the testing facilities of the Goddard Space Flight Center and the New Horizons Pluto missions.

The easiest way to get there is via rail. Your stop should be the North station, a short walking distance from the museum.


  1. Nice post.. Love the way you always describe how to get to these tourist centers you have visited and how you share your experiences during your visit.

    1. This is my passion! Love to share. (:

  2. Hi Kate! Always fun to read about your travels and your passion for the places you visit really shows through. I have heard about the Museum of Science -Boston but did not know there was so much available to see there. For instance, it was good to hear how they are not only preserving the past but also future -with the rescued animals- as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. And, who knew you could sneak peek at Nasa people there. I think it would be such a fun place to visit, especially with my daughter, who adores dinosaurs. I'm sure she would really love seeing all those dinosaur models up close and personal. :)
