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.

This is a great science museum that children will enjoy. There are plenty of exhibits to keep them busy and happy. They won't realize they are learning. There are periodic demonstrations throughout the day of science. There is a great big room where kids can...More

As many other reviewers mentioned a lot has changed at MOSI. However, we really enjoyed our visit. All of the exhibits are now located in one building. One thing that really stood out was how clean the entire building was. From the exhibits to the...More
