Visitor Info

Update: OMSI is Open

We’re excited for you to experience our Natural Sciences Hall, Empirical Theater, Kendall Planetarium, and the USS Blueback Submarine, as well as our newly reopened Turbine Hall and reimagined Science Playground!

OMSI remains committed to the health and safety of everyone at the museum—including our visitors, students, staff, and volunteers—and we want you to feel comfortable and safe while discovering at OMSI. While our region is moving closer to community immunity, we are continuing to require staff and guests ages 3 and older to wear masks.

This policy allows us to offer a safe space to the hundreds of youth visiting the museum, as the majority of these students are not yet eligible to be vaccinated.
