St. Paul >3D - Science Museum of MN
Another in a long line of dissapointments.... I used to love the science museum. Took my wife there on our first date to see a wonderful film at the Omnitheater. But since moving to the new facility and spending millions of dollars, they have turned themselves into a huge, oversized, begging for dollars, nothing worth seeing in the galleries dissapointment for the family. Today, while simply wanting shows playing and movie times it was requiring me to created an account to view future times. What a scam! Another way to get myself on another mailing list, get more junk mail, and to be hassled for a donation. This once great place for exciting fun and learning for the whole family has turned into a dismal place not unlike the political fundraising machines or the fundraising telethons of public broadcasting....and no, I don't want another Dr. Who picto-graph! This place need to wake up, and so do the donators. Expect more out of this once great St. Paul icon, or it will be yet another one of the boring, nothing to do and see places in a once great city.
A full-immersion movie experience, with an image 10 times larger than conventional flicks..
The William L. McKnight-3M Omnitheater reopened along with the rest of the museum in December 1999. A retractable screen means the nine-story dome screen can be raised over visitors' heads to expose a flat screen and large stage. The dome screen shows Imax films, of course, and the 70-by-90 flat screen can feature traditional movies. Sightlines are so good that even if you get one of the edge seats, the image won't be distorted.
The Science Museum is so fun!. I could spend hours in this place, it is so fascinating and cool! The huge screen movies make you feel like you're there! So much fun!
