My husband and I enjoyed MOSH very much! It seemed the science parts were more kid-geared than the history parts but we still enjoyed them, and spent a few hours there!
We had family in for Thanksgiving so we decided to go to MOSH on Black Friday. I was unsure of what to expect having never been here before and reading decidedly mixed reviews.

I've been to the MOSH several times and I really do enjoy it, but in reality the museum is small and has limited exhibits. I love the Currents of Time (permanent exhibit) and seem to find something I missed previously each time I go through. The Planetarium has gone through a recent renovation and is now state-of-the-art. The JEA science... More
