Last week I had the opportunity to visit OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) for the first time. I went with an 8-year-old girl and my almost 8-month-old son. It was so cool to see how into everything the 8-year-old got. I’m a bit of a science geek (robotics club, science camp, and built a computer once kind of geek) so I was incredibly excited to see so many kids having a good time learning about science. There was a lot of items for all ages. I really enjoyed the special LEGO exhibit. The 8-year-old loved building a salmon friendly damn and stream. And, my son loved the ball pit and soft padding of the infant playground.
Things I learned about a trip to OMSI:
1. Plan for an entire afternoon. We went for 4 hours and there were so many more things I wanted to see!
2. Don’t go on Spring Break if you don’t like crowds.
3. Don’t go when it rains if you don’t like crowds.
I can’t wait to go again!
BTW- this post was not sponsored in any way- I just happened to really enjoy my trip and would like to recommend it to parents in the PDX area!
