  • Although it’s a great place to bring children it is also a starting place of understanding for adults. Nicely done OMSI, your exhibits are engaging, smart and in good repair.

  • One of the best places to go in Portland especially if you have kids they have the indoor play place for kids with all year-round especially when it's raining I always buy the yearly family pass and you can get two tickets for the submarine or two tickets for the Omnimax Theater it's an excellent deal and it's right on the bus line it's a great place to go and take the family or go on a date or just your friends co-workers any event always great. Updated on 2-26-22. The kids play area is pretty well gone now. Most of the exhibits are not on display. There is really not much to look at now. It is definitely not worth the money to go in.
  • The dinosaur exhibit was great. We had a blast. Even bought a membership so we could go back and the parking pass was only $10 for the year. Can't wait to check out the planetarium on the next visit.
