About Oregon Museum Of Science And Industry

Founded in 1944, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is a place that puts the WOW! in science for the child in each of us!This HUGE museum spans 219,000 sq ft, and features 5 halls just filled with 200 interactive exhibits and activities for all ages. 

Kids can put their minds to the test and design their own solutions to real world scenarios, or they can use "human power" and take a virtual trip through Portland, and find ways to save energy.

The ocean is there to be explored as you can craft a world using an augumented sandbox, and mimic marine animal sounds, or kids can learn all about renewable energy, and how wind, water and the sun support our needs. Try stepping into an actual solar panel and see how it works!

Have you ever wanted to program a robot, or design a flying machine? You can here! You can also watch a 6ft sphere come to life with images of the sun, moon, Mars and animal migration patterns to see how the world works from a whole new perspective, and see a human in the early stages of development - yes, in the womb!

In addition to the exhibits, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry also features the impressive OMNIMAX Theater with some fascinating shows,  plus the largest planetarium in the Northwest for an out of this world experience!

Don't miss a chance to visit the USS Blueback either - the last fast-attack diesel-powered submarine built by the US Navy, having served for 31 years.

A day of science-tastic adventures where yes kids, science really is THIS fun!
