The Rochester Museum & Science Center stimulates broad community interest and understanding of science and technology, and their impact — past, present, and future — on our lives.
Through 200 hands-on exhibits, spectacular shows, and authentic collections, you’ll uncover the wonders of our region, our world, and beyond. Make family memories through themed programs that spark interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. Climb a wall, build robots, zap lasers, launch a catapult, and zoom through space — there’s so much to experience.
Our 1.2 million collection items, many on display and online, are bursting with stories. Reveal Rochester’s rich history of innovation and immerse yourself in the machines, ingenuity, and natural occurrences that formed our world today. Expect to immerse all five senses in extensive experiential learning opportunities. Lifelong learning is our passion, and becoming an astronaut, being a well-informed citizen about this place we call home, or being the next great inventor isn’t simply a dream — you can make it a reality.
The RMSC is yours to explore. Let your curiosity flourish at the Museum, Strasenburgh Planetarium, and Cumming Nature Center. We proudly engage more than 350,000 visitors annually and hope you are one of them.
