Hey Moms & Dads,
One of the best things I ever did was get a MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) membership for our family. There are different levels but we bought a basic membership at $125, which pays for a family of five.
MOSI in Tampa has a fabulous kids zone that both of my children enjoy. There are educational exhibits to interact with, rope climbing activities and fun spots like the ever–popular kid sized “Publix” grocery store.
But the membership is so much more than just open access to MOSI. There are other museums and parks you will have access to year round; each month has discounted or free admission to assigned locations, and even more benefits.
With your MOSI membership, in 2016, you can also visit:
Glazers Children Museum in Tampa at a discounted rate
Great Explorations Children’s Museum 50% of all year
Clearwater Marine Aquarium 50% off all year
We have gotten so much value from our membership with the visits we’ve done this year and it has inspired us to get out and do more. And I’ve only listed the places that my family frequents. There are a total of 21 local museums or attractions that have free or discounted admission and other reciprocal member benefits with your MOSI membership.
You also get free admission to over 250 other science museums throughout the US and worldwide and discounted admission to more than 200 children’s museums throughout North America. If you are traveling you’ll always have a fun place to take the kids. (For example when we were in Los Angeles we went to the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, California Science Center, and the Natural History Museum for free!)
A friend suggested this membership to me and I just wish I had gotten it sooner. We use it often enough that I wanted to share this helpful tip with everybody else. Rainy days are so much more fun at the museum!
