Fantastic Special Exhibit on Women Change Makers
Mei 2021 • Teman
Made a day-outing to Rochester from Buffalo to see the Women Changemakers Exhibit. This was an excellent exhibit with so many interactive/tech displays. We arrived at 10 am and didn’t leave until 1:30. There was so much information and it took a while to either read each women’s display notes and/or watch the explanatory videos. We learned so much about women from the Rochester area and the contributions they have made, or are making, in our global world. Rochester can be very proud! The exhibit was thoroughly planned and so well presented. We’ll be keeping track of future exhibits at this museum.

An education of the Rochester area.
Okt 2020
The museum is three floors with my visit limited to only the first floor.

The first floor is mostly the Expedition Earth & the Adventure Zone. The E.E. starts with small sea live exhibit before the end of the dinosaurs. There is one dinosaur-a Albertosaurus-65,000,00 years ago. Next is wildlife about 15,000 years ago with replicas of the Mastodon, Caribou, Raindeer & Muskox. Nearby is a replica of a mile high glacier, which a visitor can walk through along with much information. Also small wildlife of the modern era.

The Adventure Zone is mostly for the children. Exhibits are the Erie Canal-which a visitor can operate the locks-open & shut-and move a tug to the locks. Following exhibits are a sailing exhibit, a three life chair for different ages, a rock climbing wall a climbing slide structure, with netting-this exhibit was closed-ending with a Rain Garden Theater.

The second floor concerns the slavery of the United States & how the African-Americans were able to escape their predicament of slavery. In detail is the life & words of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs, Austin Steward, Thomas James & Henry Brown. Much of the history includes some photographs from the 1850's, many prints/illustrations, & how the Underground Railway was used to Freedom.

After the African-American exhibit is the Native-Americans from the U.S., Central America & Canada. The U.S. Indians include Iroquois, Navajo, Pueblo, Indians of Peru & Guatemala, Indians of the Northwest, Plains & Southeast, Algonquian Indians of Canada. In glass cases are clothing, vases, blankets, weapons of war & masks. One interesting exhibit is the Iroquois Wood Carvings.

The Native-American exhibit is larger than the African-American, however both are interesting & educational.

Also on the second floor is "Iullumination" -The World of Light & Optics. The 'Galley'-which has something the way light works or affects our lives. The Forces of Nature and Science on Sphere-which is a 4-5 metric sphere that rotates while hanging from the ceiling-about weather patterns.

Other museum feature are: an elevator that services all three floors, restrooms on each floor, a fountain located on the second floor and a gift shop behind the admission booth.

A map of the third floor exhibits of: Rochester In 1838, The Changemakers-Rochester Women Who Changed the World & The Electricity Theater. With a short walk is the Strasenburg Planetarium. When the coronavirus calms down, I will retrn to visit the third floor and the planetarium.

My visit lasted about three & half hours that included photography-lighting is excellent-reading as much as possible, & talking with the staff. Each member I talked with was polite & answered all my questions.

There is no cafe, however within a 1/4 mile is Calabresella's On The Park-a sub/deli shop. The gentlemen at admissions helped with instructions to the shop. Walking only takes about 12-13 minutes.

Parking is what I would call a medium lot with at least 4 handicapped spaces, My visit was on a Saturday morning & afternoon, not many visitor. One staff member informed me during certain months there are student tours.

Hours: Monday-Saturday 9:30-4:30. Sunday 11:00-4:00.
Admission: Adults-$16.00. Senior & collage students-with ID-$15.00. Ages 3-18-$14.00.

I realize this is a long review for just three floors, however each floor is very detailed, well exhibited & displayed. Both floors are interesting, historical and educational. A visit is highly recommended for any length of time.

Kind of more like Rochester’s attic
Agt 2020 • Keluarga
Strange combination of city of Rochester history exhibits, Native People’s exhibits, natural history exhibits, and a science museum. Most of the exhibits seemed dated and some were out of order due to Covid and some were just broken.

Been to other science museums in cities that are Rochester’s size (Toledo and Fort Wayne) that are more engaging for kids and more fun.

Not very cheap either at $16/adult and $14/kid. On the positive side, parking is free and while the cafe is closed due to Covid, they do allow you to bring in food and beverage and eat in the cafe seating area. Neighborhood around museum is very interesting with lots of historic mansions.

Back to the future
Des 2019
This museum is not too big, which was nice. You can easily see everything.
I love the sience side so the robots and the DMC car from Back to the Future were the star items for me.
The nature section was excellent also and had great information about the rochester area and the natives.

Parking is easy which I like. Looks small from outside but inside is huge and it was a great day. My 14 and 28 year old loved it as much as I did!

Great Science Museum
Sep 2019 • Teman
This isn't the biggest museum of it's kind but for its size it packs a big punch. The exhibits are interesting, very interactive and hands-on, incredibly visual and immersive, and manages to be fun and educational for both kids and adults as well. Combine that with the Strasenburgh planetarium on the same property, and it can't be beat. I highly recommend either or both.

We visited the museum with a large group. The exhibits were amazing. There was a good mix of hands on exhibits and ones to look at. They did offer programs throughout the day.

Very hands on fun museum!
Agt 2019
Kids (8 and 12) had a blast here. Tons of hands on exhibits and they actually learned something. My favorite part was the electricity show - being in the cage while the Van de Graaff generator was sparking was absolutely thrilling!
