The MOSH (Museum of Science and History) in Jacksonville

Being new to North Florida, we are loving finding new places to visit and explore. One such place is the Museum of Science and History(MOSH) in Jacksonville.

I’ve heard from several friends that this is a great place to take the kids. Some even have annual passes. I went on the website to check it out and found a few exhibits I definitely want to check out when we visit.

I love everything water, so the Water Worlds exhibit is on the list! The underwater world of the first coast in MOSH’s permanent aquarium exhibit. Multiple aquariums will represent the many fascinating water habitats and live aquatic animals found throughout Florida and beyond.

And who doesn’t like native animals. We are from South Florida, so I’m sure the animals are similar. Florida Naturalist’s Center houses all of MOSH’s resident live animals. Owls, snakes, turtles, tortoises, and alligators- just to name a few- are all native to Florida.

This one looks a little intimidating but fun! Enter The Body Within through MOSH’s larger than life mouth, stroll down the digestive tract, and exit out the rear! Learn all about our bodies and how they work with hands-on interactive fun. My girlfriend has to carry her son through here as he is frighten by the big mouth!

Also on my list the KidSpace, a big area to play and explore including a tree house! There is also a Planetarium, I’ve always wanted to visit one.

We are hoping to go this week to visit and explore. I have no doubt the kids and I will love it!

Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for children 3-12, BUT if you go on Fridays it’s only $5!!

Check out The MOSH on Facebook and Twitter too!


Look for more on The MOSH after we visit!




We will receive complimentary passes to visit. Opinions are my own


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
