Sweet museum for folks both young and old.
Science and beer on the patio
Closed on Mondays.
OMSI After Dark!
Planetarium and Kids science workshop.
Weekday afternoons don't tend to be very crowded. Avoid weekends and holidays.
Fantastic place for kids to learn and play. Even under 2's have a great area to mess around in.
I love their on-hold music - classic and soothing, even though you barely have to hold when you call in. What's not to love about OMSI!
Everything is good. A nerd paradise!
The best exhibit is the innovation exhibit! They have some really amazing interactive displays
Has always been a great place to take the little ones. My kids tat 16 and 18 thought they outgrew OMSI and were surprised to find that OMSI was still for them!
Best place for kids to learn n have fun
Awesome play area for kids 6 and under...loved it
Alex S. Is an awesome volunteer!
Omnimax was an amazing place to watch Gravity.
Don't come durning Winter Break unless you want to deal with major crowds.
Sherlock Holmes was awesome
Watch your timing between events, easy to lose track in one and miss another. Building layout does not flow well between main attractions. Sherlock Holmes exhibit is excellent.
$2.00 admission on the 1st Sunday of the month. Great for large families.
Amazing thing to do with kids (and fun for adults). Tons of educational games and things to play with. The laser light shows are great, as are the Omnimax movies. Worth the cost for a day of fun.
The Sherlock Holmes exhibit is amazing! Gather and test evidence to solve a murder mystery!
Amazing museum! Do check it out!
The new OMSI is disappointing. Prices are astronomical! Exhibits are now separate price. You can no longer bring your own food/snacks & eat in the cafeteria. You'll be asked to leave. Not worth it!
Learning is fun.
Now why would Allstate want to so generously support the "Earthquake House" exhibit... A true mystery.
Budding scientists love the interactive activities — mix potions in a lab, program a robot or simulate an earthquake.
This is a great place... but don't come here on a holiday!!! It's insane on Memorial Day!
Use your museum membership from home and get in for FREE.
First weekend of the month is $2 admission. Awesome, but kind of a nuthouse.
If you buy a membership, you still have to pay for everything extra (sub, planetarium, etc). $120 a year and the new exhibits are $15 each?? How many times can you walk through the same halls?
Great play area for littles ones, even a baby section.
Omsi during the day for the kids. And then omsi at night for the adults! A must check out place. You'll have fun regardless of your age.
Don't forget the submarine tour. The USS Bluebird was the last diesel submarine as the US fleet transitioned to nuclear.
OMNIMAX theater is damn nice when seeing the latest movie.
Don't forget to stop by the photo booth near the gift shop.
Do one of the laser shows in the planetarium.
Always a favorite. Fun for kids and grownups.
Lego exhibit is awesome !
Went to After Dark Baconfest, it was packed! Come early for parking and carpool!
Very nice place :-)))
Friendly staff and I enjoyed bodyworlds
Expensive and small; not a whole lot to do here if you don't want to spend a lot of money for the extras.
The bus to Hawthorne Bridge/pedestrian access is scary
Attend an OMSI After Dark Event. Last Wednesday of every month.
Give yourself at least 2-3 hours and use the audio recordings. It gives you extras points to listen to.
