The Science of Fun

We know that learning things while on vacation can be a hard sell, but at Boston Museum of Science, education and fun are perfectly blended together. Located less than ten minutes from our Boston waterfront hotel, the museum is host to fun and interesting exhibits like "Investigate!" where you can step into the role of scientist and perform hands-on experiments. There are also massive dinosaur fossils, an interactive engineering exhibit and, currently, a temporary display called "The Science Behind Pixar," which explores the science and technology behind everyone’s favorite animated films! Learn how 3D-animated films are created and get behind-the-scenes info on movies like "Toy Story," "Wall-E" and "Finding Nemo." So spend a day getting in touch with your inner scientist (and have fun doing it!).
