This is a phenomenal place for both children and adults! We have been very grateful to have the opportunity to come here numerous times, all of which were very fun, exciting, and adventurous. For the Young at Heart, the adults, I suggest the Omsi After Dark! It's a great time to socialize, drink good drinks, and have some fun without the kids! I find their rotating exhibits are very fascinating. All-in-all, I highly recommend Omsi, they always do a very good job for me and my family.

I love OMSI, this is a place for kids and adults. I enjoy all the exhibits they bring around, I enjoy their kid stuff even though I'm not a kid but I can live vicariously through my daughter. They redid the theater and now that's another thing that excites me about this place. It's just fun, and every kid living in Portland and its surrounding areas should go here at least once.

Fun museum, better for kids than adults, but worth a look. Rolling exhibits in part of the museum, but some of the exhibits and activities are constant. Gift shop is large and has a fun variety of things available. There were plenty of interesting activities and games for both children and adults. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the museum also houses a large theater and an IMAX, each with a variety of different films to choose from (costs extra - not included in museum admission). Views of the river from this museum are wonderful, and the museum has LOTS of natural light and windows.

The OMSI after dark event is pretty cool, and I would recommend for others to try. Though if you want to drink outside of happy hour, expect to pay 7$ for a 12oz beer. I would try to target cool exhibits before going as there is a rotating exhibit that changes throughout the year. Everything else stays the same though.

I have always loved OMSI since I was a kid and now I get to bring my kids here, it is always a fun time. Also now they FINALLY have reasonable prices for their membership packages. A family of four can go here for a year for a great price. They also discount the memberships in December so plan ahead.

I just drove all the way across town with high hopes of going to see a 45 minute laser show. When I arrived at OMSI I was greeted by a sign saying that I would have to pay $5 to park my car. OMSI is nowhere near any kind of good transportation especially late on a Friday night. This is just highway robbery. Not only did I leave but I will probably never go to OMSI again because they are trying to make off with all of our hard earned money. Paying to park a car? Come on!

Strictly a children's museum only. Unless your there with kids under 10 yrs old don't waste your time.

BEST MUSEUM EVER! Not boring and they have some pretty cool things to mess around with like a giant fan and a stack of paper for making paper airplanes.
