What does MOSI mean for our community?
MOSI exists for one core reason: To make a difference in people's lives by making science real for people of all ages and backgrounds.
We have inspired the 15 million guests who have visited our science center, but our reach goes so much farther.
With the help of our Members, donors, and partners, MOSI provides scholarships for kids from low-income families to go to Science Camp; gives free training to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) educators across Tampa Bay; sends our mobile science lab around the state of Florida to educate and inspire; and much more.

MOSI is the first Florida institution to participate in Museums for All, a cooperative initiative that encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits.Low-income families can visit MOSI year-round for a minimal fee. Guests with an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and a valid form of photo ID will have access for up to five guests for only $3 per person.
MOSI offers free admission to any school district employee in the state of Florida, serving 30,000 educators within easy driving distance. Our professional development training for classroom educators builds their STEAM teaching skills and our Educator-in-Training camp lets middle and high school students explore a career in teaching.
An eye-opening, inspiring field trip to MOSI just isn't an option for every school, so MOSI is ready to come to them! Each year, more than 10,000 students are impacted by MOSI's outreach programs, which take a mobile science lab, a portable planetarium, a robot construction kit, and more to any school in Florida. Grants and donations support outreach programs to schools in crucial low-income, inner-city, and rural areas.
More than 80,000 students come to MOSI each year for field trips and school group programs. With 100 hands-on experiences, sessions with MOSI educators tailored to their interests, and Planetarium shows -- they see their classroom learning come to life and leave inspired to learn and do more.
