Tips

  • After years of planning, the museum opened in 1990 in the old San Jose convention center. In 1998 it opened in a larger 3 floor venue where it holds four major theme galleries and an IMAX theatre.
  • The Star Wars exhibit is great. You can see the original costumes, models, behind the scenes videos and learn about the physics of Star Wars.
  • Check out the Jet Pack simulator, then go the RadioShack at 779 Story Road and get some So Right stuff to try to build your own.
  • Visit the To Infinity and Beyond Exhibit to scan radio frequencies from outer space. You can even listen to the audio recording and view the images that were sent out on the Voyager 1 spacecraft too.
  • Focused on inspiring the innovator in everyone it reaches, with truly hands-on and interactive exhibits, divided among themed galleries.
  • Definitely for the family.
  • On the second floor there's a robot that draws your picture. Take your picture at the computer console, then the robot picks up real pens and draws your picture in paper that you can keep.
  • If you're going to eat at the cafe, the egg salad sandwich us pretty good
  • A lot of money for the chance to watch carloads of school kids frantically push buttons
  • Highly recommended for children of all ages!
  • The Mythbusters exhibit is great.
  • The BODY WORLDS EXHIBIT comes to the Tech Museum every 3-5 years. It's amazing and probably the only reason for me to visit this venue!
  • Got kids? Gotta' go to The Tech. Just a big kid at heart? Gotta' get to The Tech.
  • It's ok, but I was expecting more, to be honest.
  • Honestly I was excited to go but not blown away from this place. Outdated exhibits and not as fun as I thought it would be
  • Active duty and veterans with VA cards get in free!!!
  • A very enjoyeable day! The exhibitions are interactive and fun, not just for kids!
  • , . . IMAX, . 15 $
  • The 3D printers and social robots artifacts are downstairs in the new 'Tech Studio'
  • We got in for free because our Museum of life and science membership reciprocated
