Be sure to buy their $10 year-long parking permit. It costs $5 each time you come to OMSI, so great deal!

If you are planning to go very often, upgrade and get a family pass and a, $10 parking pass and then it's free so you feel like you can go anytime you and you don't even have to pay for parking. What a deal!!!

Wait to do any of the water activities until the end of your visit because the kids get soaked even with the water aprons/shirts. :) Or bring a change of clothes! It's a lot of fun.

Fun for both kids and adults. Food prices are very high so we left, found lunch elsewhere then returned to continue our day at OMSI.

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.
