  • Almost everywhere where Science Museum when peeps was a museum tour of the U.S. Navy decommissioned submarines. Pay the retired soldiers will guide the submarine. Submarines normally seen in giving from the edge until the end, so I enjoyed. Will be useful in its own way people commonly exhibit what is child-friendly, help explain ideas differ from the Museum in Japan and are interested in science and technology? Submarine tours which also contains the theater and Planetarium and the Full Package price was $ 23. I think the visitors plan to spend in the form to reserve all ticket was issued, to time how long it takes at least half as good.

  • I went with a large group of children and all of them had fun. The adults were interested in the exhibits and the staff was friendly. The food court also has great food at affordable prices. I highly recommend for families.
  • They've still got it! Still as educational and fun as it was 15 years ago. The huge variety of topics and exhibits mean that there is something for everyone, and you can remain occupied for hours. They participate in a national coop of museums, so if you have a museum membership from out of town, check and see if it works at OMSI!
  • Great interactive museum for kids and adults alike. My favorite part is the submarine you can get on. They also host many different events like OMSI after dark and the MiniMaker fair which were a blast
  • Great place for my nephews, and even as an adult there was interesting things to be learned. Admission was a little pricey, but a really fun 1 or 2 time activity with lots to see. Very hands on. Cool shows.
  • OMSI is so much fun -- there is so much to do. I always have OMSI After Dark on my calendar- a night where they open the museum up for 21+ drinking, learning, merriment until 11pm. I love hanging out in the planetarium for a star show, sampling new beers, local treats, and even getting my hair done (Paul Mitchell has stylists there who will give you a hairdo for free!) It's a night where adults get to play like kids in the ball pit or the space station simulator... prepare to be amazed.
