I went to the Museum of Science recently with a few friends for the Star Wars exhibit. It was a Saturday and the place was packed. We couldn't even see the Star Wars Exhibit until 4pm, so we just roamed around the General Admission area (which is fantastic). The only unfortunate thing is that the Museum of Science attracts so many children that many of the adults can't fully enjoy the hands-on exhibits (kids occupy most of the space) so the museum is probably best for families with children 8 and up. Inside the museum there are live animals including baby chickens, small monkeys, owls, and a possum which the children can enjoy during select times. (The monkeys and the chickens are usually on display at all times.) The museum is fairly expensive (about $25 s general admission for adults) so if you're just visiting you might want to go with a value pass like the Go Boston Card which will get you into multiple attractions for one low price. The good thing is that Duck Tours leave from the Museum of Science as well, so if you want to take a Duck Tour before your visit it would be a good idea.
