The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, aka OMSI, is Portland’s science and nature museum. OMSI is a great way to spend a day with the kids. There are lots of exhibits for them to interact with and learn about the world around them. OMSI also has an adults only “OMSI after dark” that is a lot of fun too and includes a happy hour from 5-6.
The first Sunday of every month is “$2 Days at OMSI” general admission is normally $12 for adults and and $9 for kids. So taking advantage of the first sunday discount is a great way to save money for the family. Unfortunately, general admission does not include admission to some of the special exhibits such as the submarine tour, and the temporary mythbusters exhibit. However, with the money you save it will make up for spending a little extra on the special exhibits.by
