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

MOSH is a really neat place. Their exhibits are fun and interactive, and pretty informative too. The Florida Naturalist’s Center and Atlantic Tails exhibit are really neat. For those interested in history, Currents of Time gives a great look into the local history of Jacksonville. It's a pretty good size museum, and absolutely worth checking out.

As the review says, we came on a Friday, which lowered our admission costs to 5$ per head. This allows you to see the entire museum and most of the shows. They do give you a schedule, which lets you know which ones are covered, which ones are extra cost, and which ones are limited by number. The museum itself... More

We spent the morning at MOSH and it was very fun. They have great exhibits on local mammals and reptiles, a fascinating exhibit on the human body, and a great shipwrecked series at the moment. The treehouse downstairs is great for little ones, but most of the rest of the museum is geared for elementary students not preschoolers - although... More

You cannot compare this with the science or natural history museums in London but it was a very interesting place to visit. Lots of interactive things and a really interesting science workshop which demonstrated experiments to the children and was interesting to adults too.

The museum was well planned, and we especially enjoyed the classroom demonstration on electricity. The young man who did this exhibition was named Josh, and he made the entire experience one that was unforgettable.

I had no clue that there was so much information on mammals here in florida as well as the rest of the world. It was really educational. When I was there they had the megaladon skeloten on display. Not what was expected but still a good display. My daughter loved the dolphin exhibit as well as seeing the turtles outside.... More
