The Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology (MOST) is growing and changing all the time.

With new exhibits such as PALEO: The Story of Life telling the story of earth, new programs such as the reduced rates for Electronic Benefit Cardholders, and new features like our mobile app that reduces our paper map usage for over 120,000 annual visitors – the MOST is reimagining itself in countless ways.

What has not changed is our unwavering commitment to STEM education in our community.

  • The MOST proudly hosts visits from every kindergarten, 4th and 8th grade student annually from the Syracuse City School District – over 4,500 students – as part of our Science Learning Partnership. We also welcome an additional 12,000 area students who come for field trips.
  • Once a month the Museum stays open until 7:30 pm with exhibit noises and flashing lights turned off so children with autism and their family members can enjoy a comfortable and nurturing learning environment during Sensory Friendly Time.
  • Every year, over 1,000 students spanning CNY and twelve neighboring counties participate in five education programs – four engineering-based Design, Build & Compete events and the Central New York Science & Engineering Fair where over $200,000 in scholarships are awarded.

From a toddler learning through fun and play to a middle schooler getting a hands-on learning experience that helps them in the classroom, the MOST is engaging our community’s young minds with the wonder of science discovery. Would you please help us?

Your tax-deductible gift makes an impact immediately and is essential to the MOST’s vision to inspire the wonder of science discovery in tomorrow’s doers, dreamers & thinkers.

Best wishes,


Toni Martin, PRESIDENT                        Lauren Kochian, EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT
