Lots of Learning, Lots of Fun!
OMSI wants to help you explore the connections between the big wide world and our individual impacts. Come through the doors and find hundreds of exciting hands-on exhibits, labs where you can put on your goggles and do real science, playgrounds dedicated to the littlest scientists, halls for families to problem solve together, and spaces where only teens can enter!
