Oregon Museum of Science and Industry Portland Reviews
Great place for kids Sep 24, 2013
If you have kids, or want to see one of the special exhibitions at the Planetarium - then OMSI is good for a morning or afternoon's entertainment and enlightenment.
If you're going on your own, as an adult, then the $13 entrance fee is a bit steep considering what's inside. Having said that - the pre-natal exhibition is fascinating: there's a whole collection of fetuses from 31 days to 38 weeks' old. If you find that morbid - then skip it.
There are lots of interactive displays throughout the museum, which are great for children to learn about nature and science. There's a big room with lots of science labs to learn about physics and chemistry; it was amusing to watch the hair raising caused by the Van der Graaf Generator.
