The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is the premier science and technology museum in Portland founded in 1944. The actual museum site opened in 1992, however the organization behind the museum saw its humble beginnings in 1906 when it held a national resources exhibit at the City Hall Museum. The Museum of Science and Industry strives to inspire curiosity through engaging scientific learning and experimentation, a dedication to learning that has brought over a million visitors to campus. This museum is actually one of the top science centers in the United States, with an international reputation for interactive exhibits and educational programs.
Inside this large scientific wonderland your group will find five halls full of over 200 interactive exhibits and activities suitable for guests of all ages.

You may also explore the USS Blueback Submarine, the Planetarium, the Motion Simulator, the Theater (featuring both scientific and Hollywood blockbusters), the children's Scientific Playground, and even the new Riverfront eatery. Explore any of the permanent exhibits or special exhibits, currently featuring such topics as Guitar- Instruments that Rocked the World, Game Masters, and Space.
