Where are we going today?

It's so much fun when kids can go to a museum and enjoy some really fun hands-on exhibits - and it's even better when they learn at the same time!

That's where the Museum of Science and History (MOSH) comes in. The museum is ALL about educating kids on the world, and the wonders of science. So they have created a number of fun, hands-on activities which can teach the kids as they have fun! Sounds pretty cool to us!

The Museum of Science and History have core exhibits, so you know that you can always return to your favorites if you like. These cover a whole range of fascinating topics, like The Body Within, where you can actually stroll through a mouth (don't worry, not a real one!) and have a wander down the digestive tract...and well, you get the idea! A fun way to learn all about the human body! 

Ever wondered what was out underneath the oceans of the Atlantic? Atlantic Tails lets the family travel into the underwater world of the Atlantic and explore all the amazing marine creatures that live there - from mammals, reptiles, and even a fun Touch Tank where they can get their hands right in and see what else lives there! 

What do you think Florida was like 12,000 years ago? In the Current of Time exhibit, you can go back in time and uncover Florida's history and find out what life would have really been like all those years ago!

There are animal exhibits with tortoises, turtles and snakes, exhibits all about energy, and even a special area for parents and kids under 5 who want to play in a huge treehouse! Science...nature...the museum covers it all! 

Of course, there are also ever changing exhibits so there is always something new for you when you return. 

It's learning made fun at the Museum of Science and History! Have a great day kids!

    My family and I wanted to go to MOSH so we looked at website and read the reviews. I'm happy to say that despite the horrible reviews we went. And it was so much fun, very informative and very hands on. It's not new age technology crap which is what people seem to be looking for these days. If you like science,history ,reading and southern hospitality. I recommend going here, taking your kids or grand kids. We could have spent days here.

    When I was 10, I went to the MOSH and thought it felt old. I went with my two sons last year and it had ALL of the SAME exhibits from that time. It's a sad place of languished dreams and worn exhibits. Jacksonville should really put some more effort into its science museum if it really wants to be a big city. Have as many One Spark's as you want, but unless this city can demonstrate it's capacity to learn, adapt and move forward, they will all be in vain.

    The laser show was awesome but I think I liked when they showed the earth and the stars show better

    I've been going since I was a child. It seemed a little more exciting then but now taking my children we were all bored. Plus, now they have very insulting history of famous people and their ancestry concluding if they were born in the 1800s they would've been a slave based off their dna. Rude

This museum isn't even made for children, it's made with very little funds by people who could really care less.
