Fodor's Review

Known locally as MOSH, this museum is home to the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium. As a next-generation planetarium, it can project 3-D laser shows that accompany the ever-popular weekend Cosmic Concerts. For those taking in the planetarium shows, the resolution is significantly sharper than that of the biggest HDTV on the market. Whether you're a kid taking in Sesame Street's One World, One Sky, or an adult star-gazing in the Skies over Jacksonville tour of the night sky, the experience is awesome. MOSH also has a wide variety of interactive exhibits and programs that include JEA Science Theater, where you can participate in live science experiments; JEA PowerPlay: Understanding our Energy Choices, where you can energize the future city of MOSHtopia as you learn about alternative energy resources and the science of energy; the Florida Naturalist's Center, where you can interact with northeast Florida wildlife; and the Currents of Time, where you'll navigate 12,000 years of Northeast Florida history, from the region's earliest Native American settlers to modern day events. Nationally acclaimed traveling exhibits are featured along with signature exhibits on regional history.
