I came here thinking that it was going to be grand and it was not. I have a 2 year old and a 12 year old. Nothing to do for the toddler except for a jungle gym outside, which even then was not age appropriate...More

The IMAX closed along with about 75% of the museum. What remains are a handful of exhibits and upsells. It's extra for the ropes and virtuall reality. It was OK but I would have skipped it if I had known this.

I've taken all my grand kid's to MOSI when they were younger. A wonderful experience for young kids to see the exhibits! They're older now but still remember those visits!

A fun day. The museum is right across the street from the University of South Florida and very close to Busch Gardens. Geared to kids, we love the interactive nature of the museum.

Visiting from out of town and bought the city pass which included the MOSI tickets. After walking through the place in 60 minutes - glad we didn’t pay for this place or make a special trip. I found that it was dated, lacked any oomph....More
