You'd be surprised how much children under 6 can also enjoy it! Even toddlers!

Weekends are pretty busy, but manageable, especially early. The food in the main food court is wonderful! And you have a view of the river and bridges. The special exhibits are always great, and there are sections for people of all ages.

My fiancee love this place. But if you don't have kids (like us) it might not be as fun. We love it because we are big kids who like toys and being stupid. Plus you get a discount in the gift shop (tons of cool stuff), they have laser light shows and OMSI After Dark which makes it worth it.

OMSI is an amazing place to take your children. They have activities for all ages and even when it is packed there are so many things to do that you can always find open exploration stations.

From Our Editors

The entire Earth spins inside of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. It's as if visitors have launched into outer space, where they can see everything—clouds forming over North America, hurricanes churning in the tropics, and millions of animals in migration. Night falls, and the major cities light up Earth's continents like misshapen Christmas trees. Just then, the planet disappears, and in its place rises a spinning orb of fire and violent solar storms: the sun. The display, appropriately titled Science On a Sphere, is actually a 6-foot animated globe powered by a series of video projectors. It serves as the perfect centerpiece for OMSI's Earth Hall, which explores geology, tectonics, and everything else that makes Earth a living planet. The hall's exhibits let visitors control wind turbines and launch satellites into space.

Earth Hall is only one section of the museum, however. More hands-on activities wait within Turbine Hall, where kids design bridges and boats. Visitors can tour the USS Blueback, a U.S. Navy attack submarine that guarded the Pacific for 31 years, or gaze towards the heavens inside of Kendall Planetarium, which uses real-time 3D graphics to transport audiences into the very heart of black holes. Even Theory, the onsite eatery, has an educational focus. The restaurant's displays explore food sciences while Chef Ryan Morgan and his team use local ingredients to cook meals in full view.

Although every corner of OMSI sparks scientific curiosity, the museum's educational programs take things one step further. The faculty hosts astronomy camps and teaches 50-minute interactive labs in which kids might make soap or dissect a squid—a requisite skill for any future biologist or sushi chef.
