Nice museum, the staff are really customer care oriented, the exhibits were spacious and not overcrowded. Lots of learning on all levels, one area is specifically geared towards children and I can see that the people in that area enjoying themselves. The planetarium was nice and comfortable, watch the Black Holes documentary. The submarine was great and informative, every question I had was answered with their Naval military experienced guides. I would definitely come back for another visit.
Definitely one of my favorite spots in the downtown Portland area. It's a fun and interactive museum with some good stable exhibits as well as rotating featured exhibits. Their Marvel exhibit was super exciting with a lot of cool things to see, such as props from the movies themselves. It's a great place for both locals and tourists, as well as for people of all ages to visit, though the kids can get rather annoying and in your personal space. It's an awesome place to explore with your partner for a date night. Entrance tickets are reasonably priced, though the merchandise and gift shop stuff is expectedly pricey.
Very cool experience! We went on a Saturday so obviously there were a ton of people, but we expected that. The Marvel exhibit was awesome, highly encourage people to check that out, even if you aren't a big fan! All in all good experience.
A place to checkout while in Portland! This place is very interactive and interesting. A family-friendly place with a lot of activities and attractions for all ages. A personal favourite while visiting OMSI was the Nelson Mandela exhibit. It was well-presented and outlines his early life until post-presidency. It was a great visit!
Our trip to OMSI was pretty awesome! We were sad to see that the exhibit hall wasn't open. I guess that's my bad for not looking it up. I was happy to see that all of the children interactive exhibits were open. My 6-year-old ADHD son had a blast! We spent 2 hours there and all of us felt we saw all we needed to see and had a great experience. Definitely fun for the whole family!
