Museum of History and Science is one of the coolest places I have ever been to. They have a lot of the most extraordinary exhibitions.

Just to mention some of them, my favorits were the Earth Revealed. In the middle of the exhibit room there is a huge model of the earth presenting it's present state and around that there are a lot of pictures and snapshots taken from the space. A lot of special effects, it is amazing.

Another favorite is the Scence Storms room. It shows the science behind a lot of natural phenomena, like storms, tornados etc. There are about 50 different experiments with phenomena and it shows everything you ever wanted to know about these things.

Price:
Children - $10
adults - $15
There are some additiona fees for a few exhibitions.

Opening Hours:
9:30 Am to 5:30 PM every day
