OMSI is an excellent science museum that features five halls filled with interactive exhibits, a planetarium, a terrific science playground for tykes 0-6 years old, laser rock shows, movies, and even an actual submarine to explore. And be sure to check out their OMSI After Dark series geared for the grownups, which tackles scientific subjects with the help of beer. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
