  • I have visited several museums of science and industry and they are all better than MOSI. The exhibits were very mundane and several were not even open. The best part about MOSI is the movie screens. ...  more »
  • The museum was all about medical treatments and learning about health and operations, not really very interesting. Parking was another $5 to leave the place. Took about one hour. 
  • Entertaining and educational at the same time. Fun for adults and for kids. Ample parking, easy to find, right across from USF. I suggest you make a morning of it.

  • Ehhhh. Not that amazing. We have Orlando science center memberships so came here for free. I'm glad we didn't pay. After two hours we had completely run out of things to do. my children are ages 1 to 6 so maybe if kids are older they would have more fun? The hands on displays were OK but there weren't many. I would rather spend my money elsewhere if I was paying full price
  • It's a good time for kids. Wish it had more interactive exhibits, but their hands on projects are a plus.
  • Someone needs to give them a lot of money, a larger facility, and a new imax screen. Great for small children but Tampa deserves better. I'd rather have a new mosi than big screens at rayjay.
  • Too many items is not working. IMAX is great but movie selection very small. They plays the same movies through months
  • Good but, I thought it would be more impressive. Anyways, everything is well organized and the staff is Sooo Friendly!
