The Museum's Mission
The Museum’s mission is to play a leading role in transforming the nation’s relationship with science and technology.
This role becomes ever more important as science and technology shape and reshape our lives and world, and it means we:
  • Promote active citizenship informed by the world of science and technology
  • Inspire lifelong appreciation of the importance and impact of science and engineering
  • Encourage young people of all backgrounds to explore and develop their interests in understanding the natural and human-made world
To do this, we will continue to build our position as a leader in the world’s museum community and use our educational perspective as an informal learning institution to help the formal pre K – 12 education system.

The Museum's Vision
The Museum of Science believes that everyone has a role to play in the world of science and technology – as learners, as future scientists or engineers, as citizens of our nation, as community leaders and members of the workforce, as consumers, and as stewards of our planet.
The Museum of Science is committed to deepening the public’s relationship with science and technology by leading efforts throughout the United States and abroad, in both formal and informal educational arenas, to redefine the roles that science centers can play.
  • Within our own building, we will continuously transform our exhibits and programs to tell a story of the natural world and the designed world that focuses on the important connections, sustainability and interdependencies of these worlds.
  • Throughout New England, we will form partnerships with all sectors to enrich our offerings, to represent the cutting edge of science and technology, and to take our invitation into science and technology out to schools and neighborhoods in order to build and strengthen our community.
  • Throughout the nation, and the world, we will take a leadership role in integrating engineering into school curricula, in forming networks with other Museums to engage visitors everywhere in exploring the impact of science and technology on their lives, and in developing an expanded role for science centers as conveners of forums on critical societal issues.
Through these efforts, the Museum of Science will foster communities near and far in which all citizens have access to the worlds of science and technology and the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about the issues and developments shaping their lives and our planet’s future.
