Science Playground is temporarily closed so we can create exciting NEW experiences in the space.
An alternative play space is available in the Natural Sciences Hall for kids ages 0–6 during the closure. Young guests can also explore the Greg Chaillé Curium in Turbine Hall or dive into developmentally-appropriate experiences in each of OMSI’s labs.
Winter Weekends for Young Learners
OMSI is excited to host fun weekend pop-up programming through March. Winter Weekends offer kids under 8 (and their families) opportunities to play with some of Science Playground’s most popular offerings while the space undergoes a full refresh.
Guests can sink their hands into flubber at the sensory table, create a take-home art project, construct a castle out of DUPLO blocks, or build a crane using our Rig-Ama-Jig construction set. Select weekends will feature special performances by popular Portland-based children’s entertainers!
Adults must be accompanied by a child under 8 to enter. Entry is included with museum general admission.
