MISSION STATEMENT: MOSI is the intersection of science, technology and innovation in the Tampa Bay region where conversations and learning happen, knowledge is exchanged and new ideas are celebrated
VISION: To be recognized as a thought leader and catalyst contributing to a thriving Tampa Bay region through science, technology and innovation
Tampa’s Museum of Science & Industry – we call it MOSI for short – is a scientific playground with more than 100 hands-on activities!
See the stars in The Saunders Planetarium, explore another world in our NASA-funded Mission: Moonbase lunar colony and touch the future in Connectus.
MOSI's innovative exhibits urge you to ask questions and expand your mind. We show you how cool curiosity can be – there are no tests or quizzes here. We spark conversations about the world and the future among kids and their grandparents, between spouses, and with strangers. There’s no other place like it in Tampa Bay.

MOSI is a not-for-profit magnet for innovation in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education where we make a difference in people’s lives by making science real for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Education and outreach programs take our unique blend of fun and learning and spread it through the community. Our Summer Science Camps inspire students from preschool through high school. Several initiatives take MOSI’s telescopes and mobile lab out into schools and neighborhoods. And our Museums of All program – the first in Florida – allows low-income families to visit MOSI at a dramatically discounted price.
Ever built and launched a rocket? Ordered electricity to obey your commands? Turned simple chemicals into incredible ooze? Every day, families team up to make that happen in MOSI’s Idea Zone® maker space.
The hands-on problem-solving skills America needs as we head into the 21st century aren’t just “taught” daily at MOSI – they’re celebrated and energized, so the conversations keep going at home around the dinner table.
