The Museum of Science & History (MOSH), an accredited museum since 1983, has actively served Northeast Florida since 1941. It is the largest science and history museum in the region serving 225,00 visitors last year. The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium is one of the largest single-lens digital dome planetariums in the United States carrying the Museum’s legacy of leading the region as an expert resource for space science since 1951. MOSH combines exhibits and programs to maximize the visitor experience and provide platforms for dynamic and interactive learning for every generation. Core, traveling and signature exhibits aligned with programming are designed to serve adult, family and student audiences.
