In 1830, six men interested in natural history established the Boston Society of Natural History, an organization through which they could pursue their common scientific interests. Devoted to collecting and studying natural history specimens, the society displayed its collections in numerous temporary facilities until 1864, when it opened the New England Museum of Natural History at the corner of Berkeley and Boylston Streets in Boston's Back Bay. That Museum is now known world-wide as the Museum of Science.Museum of Science, Boston, Boston — Mugar Omni Theater
When the world's largest film format is projected onto a five-story-tall Imax® Dome screen, it wraps audiences in larger-than-life images of flora, fauna, and faraway places. A state-of-the-art digital sound system completes the immersion effect. You'll find yourself at the center of the action — whether tracking elusive rainforest animals, flying into the eye of a hurricane, or taking that final, hard-won step to the pinnacle of an impossibly tall mountain.
