The Museum includes and IMAX theater, 3-D Digital Cinema, Planetarium, Live Presentations, and a Simulator Experience. Of course, the Museum of Science didn’t always have such elaborate Features and Exhibits.


In 1860, 6 men interested in natural history established the Boston Society of Natural History through which they could pursue their common scientific interests. The organization collected and studied natural history specimens and displayed these collections in a variety of temporary locations until 1864, when it opened the New England Museum of Natural History in Boston’s Back Bay.

Choose Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers– a Boston Hotel in Boston’s Back Bay located steps from Boston Public Garden, and close to Boston’s Freedom Trail and Boston Museums like the Boston Museum of Science. Take a Tour of this historic Boston Hotel that has stood the test of time.


The New England Museum of Natural History is today known worldwide as the Museum of Science.


After World War II, the Society sold the building, changed the name to the Boston Museum of Science (although, eventually Boston was dropped from the official name), and signed a 99-year lease with the Metropolitan District Commission for the land that is now known as Science Park.


In 1948, the Museum erected the 1st traveling planetarium to promote the development of a new building. In 1951, the 1st wing of the new Museum of Science building was officially opened, comprising 1,400-square-feet of exhibit space and becoming the first Museum to embrace all sciences under one roof.


During the next 2 decades, the Museum of Science greatly expanded and the Charles Hayden Planetarium opened in 1958. By the early 1970s, the Museum’s West Wing was completed and the Theater of Electricity – a 2-story tall, high-voltage electricity generator – opened in 1980.


In 1999, the Museum incorporated The Computer Museum; in 2001, it opened its Gordon Current Science & Technology Center; and in 2004, the Museum of Science launched the National Center for Technological Literacy.


With the continual growth and expansion of the Museum of Science to include more innovative and interactive Exhibits, state-of-the-art film technology Shows, live Presentations and to facilitate an appreciation for science and technology to visitors worldwide, Museum of Science is sure to be a Boston Attraction you want to return to again and again.
