It's a really nice small museum. It was only $10, parking was free, and the exhibits-- especially the Florida history exhibit-- were fascinating. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours.

My kids love MOSH. Great hands on activities that are so facinating that your kids wont know until later that they are learning as well as having fun. Great special attractions, so visit the website often. A little pricey for what you get.

My family and I visited this hotel on a weekday. Everyone enjoyed all of the interactive things to do here. We signed up for the Planetarium class which had a small fee. We all enjoyed this and learned a lot about planets and the stars. There is also a kid tree inside for kids to play in for 5 and... More

This is more a museum of history than a museum of science. Jacksonville is such a big city that it is very disappointing to call this a museum of science. The science museum in Tampa is way better...

We joined a birthday party at MOSH. My kids had a great time! Wish there were more things for younger kids...

Our favorite part of MOSH was learning about the pirates and shipwrecks. The body exhibit was interesting but i have seen it before elsewhere. The planetarium movie was good at a decent price. If you are looking to spend 3-5 hours in the city this is the place. Was not very crowded and free parking.

The MOSH is the Epcot Center of Jacksonville! I would recommend spending at least two days here in order to see all of the exhibits. There are three levels to the museum, plus an outdoor exhibit. There are stairs, elevators and bathrooms that are easily accessible. The various exhibits are diverse and educational. I highly recommend the history of Jacksonville... More

You can go through this place in about two hours. There is a small live animal area where sometimes you can pet some of the animals. If your kids like dinosaurs there is only one. Get the planetarium ticket and its cheaper on the first weekend of the month if you have a BOA card (each person gets in free... More
