Admission

Museum of Science, Boston

Exhibit Halls

Our Exhibit Halls invite you to explore everything from the latest high-tech developments to dinosaurs, space travel, and the natural world. To ensure you have a safe & T-rex-cellent experience, the Museum will admit a reduced number of visitors each day. Think of it as more Museum for you!

All visitors need to purchase a timed ticket before visiting. Tickets can be purchased online, 24 hours a day, or by calling 617-723-2500 (daily, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm). You’ll then receive a confirmation email including your QR code to be scanned at the Exhibit Halls entrance for contactless admission.

Capacity is limited, so it’s strongly recommended that you reserve your tickets at least 2 – 3 days ahead of your visit. Once capacity is reached, we will be unable to allow entry to any more guests. Reservations are required for Exhibit Halls, as well as The Science Behind Pixar (at no additional cost), at the time of ticket purchase.
