Located on the banks of the Mississippi River in downtown St. Paul, the 70,000-square-foot Science Museum of Minnesota is designed to spark a love of science in people of all ages. Learn how we can change the world at the Future Earth exhibit or study anatomy in the Human Body Gallery. Discover one of only four real mounted Triceratops in the Dinosaurs & Fossils Gallery, build math muscle at the “Math Moves” exhibit, or extract wheat germ DNA in the Cell Lab. Grab a seat and explore all the wonders of our national parks in the state-of-the-art Omnitheater, a giant dome screen offering a variety of films every day. For some live science action, view one of the museum’s daily theater performances on topics ranging from fermentation to Charles Darwin’s bulldog. Indeed, this is a place for curious minds as it is dedicated to topics like paleontology, physical science, technology, the human body, and peoples and cultures of the Mississippi River.
