I always going there from time to time to see what's new there. The planetarium has plenty of seating & is very informative. The walk down memory lane for those that like to reminisce about the days gone by (the old style furnishings) or just see pictures & memorabilia of what life was like long ago. There is military discount... More

This place is INCREDIBLE!! I took my 2 year old daughter on $5.00 Friday so it only cost us $5.00 for so much hands on fun!! The sea life creatures are amazing with the bones and live sea creatures you can actually touch. Then the room with the turtles and snakes is so amazing. You could actually see all the... More

Great museum for kids and adults. The planaterum is wonderful and the various programs during the year lets you see the ever hanging night sky. The hands on for kids is wonderful, my wife always took her second graders down each year. It is worth the trip

I was told by a lot of people that this museum was out of this world awesome. Personally I felt it was really small. I went with my grandmother, sister, and toddler nephew. This place is definitely not baby friendly. We were in one part of the museum where they had hurricane simulators, and he freaked out, had to rush... More

Not much to see here. Took longer to maneuver into the parking lot than it did to go thought this place. Did not go into the planetarium for fear of further disappointment. One floor had nothing but billboard advertisements displayed. Definitely wasn't crowded!

This is a must see for anyone, especially if you have children. It is interactive and has very good things for everyone to see and do!

Went with my wife while on a mini vacation. Plan to take our 2 year old back in the near future. this place is not only cheap 8-10 bucks, but also educational and entertaining for all age groups. Perfect place to take the kids and even watch a movie in the planetarium.

I have been to better science museums, that's for sure. The MOSH is good for a day out if it's raining. I would only visit maybe 2 times a year. I went with my daughter's school (3rd grade) field trip, and they had a closed off "lab" to do science presentations. That was very nice. I just wish it was... More

This was a wonderful surprise and a delight. We enjoyed every square inch of this museum even being adults. So much fun and informative. Loved the pirate information and the history of Florida. Really like the interactive displays and the live animals here. Wonderful 3 hrs and well worth the time and money to see this wonderful museum. Would recommend... More

Life long learning... MOSH shows you how. 3 minutes in and I had learned something I had always wondered: what it feels like to be next to a whale! They have a life sized whale cut-out on a wall to give you a sense of the size of these immense creatures. The rest of the visit was equally amazing -... More
