“Education at its finest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

OMSI always makes learning science fun! As a science teacher, I'm happy to see a museum that kids enjoy so much. I also love that they bring it traveling exhibits to keep a variety of topics to learn about. I enjoy OMSI every time I go.

“Guaranteed fun everytime.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I absolutely love OMSI! It's super fun for a first date or with a huge group of slightly inebriated friends. Heads up, if you're over 21 they have a thing called 'OMSI after dark'. It's once a month and it's a mixture of food, science, adult beverages and good fun times. Oh, and all without annoying kids getting in the way.

“Lots for kids to do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

This is an excellent place to take the children, lots of hands on experiments to keep them interested. It was just me and my husband on our visit and we found ourselves getting into the activities (when they weren't surrounded by kids)

“For Science Enthusiasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

If you are a thinker, this museum gives you the opportunity to solve puzzles and run experiments. There are also a number of visual displays. There also is an Imax Theatre and Planetarium. We spent 4 hours without seeing the planetarium show. At about $11 per person, this was inexpensive entertainment.
