Paid way too much money for a horrible experience. Everything is broken, and there is very little to do. What there is to do has little educational or fun value. My kids ages 4-12 hated it and were bored. I was shocked at how dirty the place was, especially the area for the toddlers and little kids. The baby area had visible dirt on the toys. Just gross. We left after an hour.

There are a lot of things to do here including the IMAX theatre, but it will cost you. There is a student and a senior discount available if you qualify.

Tthis is one of the most entertaining museums to visit! It makes learning so muc fun! If you have not gone yet, you should soon. Unfortunatly, I did not get a chance to see the bodies exibit, but I have been to MOSI and have always been impressed with the detail, the effort they put into everything. You will have so much fun, especially if you have children. It is eye opening!

PROS: So much to see and learn

I thought when i took my kids ages 7,2 and 1 they would be bored. But they had alot of stuff for them do do. Even the baby enjoyed herself. The 7 year old had lots of fun .
Great day for the money.

MOSI is a great asset to Tampa.

The exhibits they have are truely fun for all ages from the interactive ones for the little kids and the more scientific for teenagers and adults.

My family will even frequent the IMAX when we are in the mood for a movie instead of just going to the regular cineplex.

MOSI also offers so great wallet friendly packages for families who go repeatedly.

The Einstein on Wine is also great for the adults

We made our first trip to MOSI today with our 4 children. We had a blast! When we walked in we were promptly greeted and directed to where we could present our reciprocal passes to gain free admission. There was a HUGE line due to the traveling exhibit, but we were able to bypass all of the traffic and move right along. The staff was very helpful and friendly, everyone we saw greeted us politely. My children especially enjoyed the Body Wars flight simulator and Kids in Charge. MOSI had something even my 1 and 2 year olds could enjoy. The trip was definately worth the 2 hour drive and we will be back!

PROS: Something for even the youngest!
CONS:

This place is amazing and keeps getting better!! There is always something new and exciting to see at MOSI. It's great for kids and adults too. You can go to IMAX, see the new Bodies exhibit or go to the new Kids museum. It's clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
Plan to stay all day and buy the pass that allows you to do it all!!

We have gone here many times and our son loves it and we do too! Prices can be reasonable and it does get a little crowded but it is a wonderful museum and one of the best in Tampa Bay.

My children and i visited Mosi not long ago and they loved it. I find most museums to be rather boring and didnt think they would like it all that much but they did. there are lots of interactive things for the kids to do and that makes it fun for them. My youngest son loved the dinasour exhibit best.

PROS: Lots of things for kids to do, Fun

I think MOSI (The museum of science and industry) is smart for creating that new dead body exhibit. They are a science museum, and that is a great science learning experience.

MOSI changes their exhibits fairly frequently, so whether it's dinosaurs or space, they always have something interesting.

The IMAX dome is cool, but because it is not a traditional IMAX screen (normally they are just larger square screens) it can makes you a bit dizzy. Prices have certainly gone up over the years but are still reasonable. Expect to see a lot of kids running around as the museum often attracts elementary classes and field trips.

We went to this museum during Labor Day weekend, so it was a little crowded. We arrived early enough, however, so our first couple of hours were okay. Upon first inspection, it looked like nothing special. We ended up spending all afternoon at MOSI. Our kids loved the area especially for little ones. They also liked the play area upstairs as well as the outer space exhibit. We definitely would recommend this museum to any age!! Something for everyone!!

PROS: reasonably priced
CONS:

We visited the Bodies exhibit at this museum. It was extremely educational and quite entertaining. The environment was clean and the staff friendly. The admission prices were higher than I expected, however they do give military discounts.

a great place to have fun with friends or family, while learning about the human anatomy at the same time. one of my friends quit smoking after looking at one of the bodies which suffered deterioration due to smoke. how better could it get.

This is a great place to take the kids. My kids enjoyed every aspect of this, from the drive there to the actual exhibits. Its decently priced, and fairly clean. I would reccomend this museum to everyone, whether you have children or not. In fact, i will be taking my neices and nephews there as birthday presents from now on! They were really interested in all the electricity displays!

My niece and I went to this museum and had a blast. She is very much into knowing how things work and why. They had many different exhibits for her to explore. They also have an IMAX movie theater which show some great movies. Would recommend. One of the coolest exhibits is the hurricane room. You can sit in a room that blows air at hurricane force speed. Very cool

This is a great place to take the kids on a rainy day or any day for that matter! It is interactive and hold their attention. The IMAX theater is something else...amazing! This was fun for my 6 yo and my 10 yo can't beat that! I didn't find it pricey either! They have free days too once or twice a year...check them out! your kids will love it!

PROS: interactive exhibits, IMAX
CONS: construction was going on and parking limited

For roughly $65.00 per week, your 2nd -5th grader can enjoy wonderful afterschool programs with the Museum of Science and Industry. They provide snacks, homework assistance and more. The children will even get guided tours through the museum as part of the after school program. This is an excellent way to keep children busy and intellectually stimulated after school.

Have you seen an IMAX film yet? Wow, is all I can say, you can feel it all around you, and if you are not careful, it will make you dizzy because it is all around you. They have lots of different things to see here, moving dinosaur skeletons was my youngest favorite. Mosi has many different hands on science exhibits, right now they are featuring a really cool space exhibit. The gift shop is a must see as well, they offer many different sciency things to buy for the kiddos. The food court is of course overpriced but their food is good.

PROS: great educational fun
CONS: pricey

They have several things to offer here. Find out information on thunderstorms to playing in the kids area. They have a hurricane room that you can experiance what it feels like to be in 74 mile per hour winds. This place is also great for birthday parties. You can pick from an assortment of themes they have and based on that theme, you make something. We had one based on dinasours and mad a tooth. They also have the IMAX theater that is not included in the regular admission. But it is something you should check out.

Stroll through butterfly gardens, experience the strength of a hurricane, wander through space, ride a bike in mid-air and so much more.

Tampas Museum of Science and Industry is a great way to spend an afternoon of learning and fun. You can pay for individual activities or package deals. The activities include a tour of the basic museum which has plenty of hands on activities to keep even the most active hands busy. A planetarium, an IMAX movie theater that shows several times a day and visiting displays that are always well worth the money. The displays make you feel like you are right therewherever there is that month.

For a first time visitor the full package is the best but be prepared to spend a full day there.

I used to enjoy MOSI every once ina while. Then managament made moves that disappointed me greatly. The first was the cancelation of the laser light shows. The shows were ALWAYS packed when I attended, so I doubt they were not money makers.

I have been unimpressed with the old wing of MOSI for years now. Most of the exhibits are obsolete, and half of them were broken during my past few visits. After visits to other museums, the lack of relevance of MOSI to Florida's science and industry fields is apparent. No attention is paid to the mining or agriculture industries.

The under-five set enjoys their own supervised play area, freeing older family members to hike adjoining nature trails, chase butterflies or ride the new high-wire bike. For more thrills, Florida's first IMAX Dome…
