MOSI, also know as the Museum of Science and Industry, was one of my favorites places to visit when I was a child.  It has been years since I’ve returned.  This was the first time I brought my son, and we had a great time exploring MOSI.  This photo was made in the original building on the second floor.  This is a horizontal skylight looking out to the south side of the museum.  It was a cloudy and rainy day, a perfect day for a museum visit.

The Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) is a science museum in Tampa, Florida, USA. It is the location of Florida’s only IMAX Dome Theatre.

MOSI was completed in 1980 and permanently opened to the public in 1982.

The Museum of Science & Industry was reaccredited in April 2008 by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM).

MOSI’s funding stems from private donations and support from Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa.

The museum is located directly across the street from the University of South Florida which partners with the museum in many research fellowships.

Summer Science Camps. MOSI offers summer educational camps usually lasting from June through August. These camps range in various scientific topics from outdoor wild adventures to learning about sea creatures to creating animation. The camps are designed for students Pre-K through twelfth grade. MOSI’s Summer Science Camp is the largest single-site science and technology camp in the United States. In addition to youth programs, MOSI also offers senior programs.
