 MOSI Outside

The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Tampa, Florida is dedicated to making science real for people of all ages. MOSI Outside includes the Flight Encounter Exhibit where guests can get up close and personal with Central Florida's native butterflies, all raised on-site in our animal husbandry lab. Guests can also visit an extensive outdoor butterfly garden and Historic Tree Grove, or walk the trails of the Backwoods Nature Preserve.

All MOSI Outside exhibits are open during museum operating hours. Museum admission is not required to visit MOSI Outside (parking fees still apply).


Major funding for the MOSI Outside comes from Bank of America, The Jacarlene Foundation, and Southwest Florida Water Management District.
