Museums, Things to Do with Kids, Sightseeing, Family-Friendly Museums: Located across the street from the University of South Florida, MOSI has an exhibit for everyone in your party. It strives to cover all disciplines of science, including biology, anatomy, physics, and meteorology in its massive space. Equally impressive is the IMAX dome theater, where films are shown on a massive curved screen that surrounds the audience. Toward the back of the complex is a large kids area with science-related exhibits for the smaller members of your family, as well as some bouncy houses and other amusements. This is definitely worth a day, especially if you catch a movie in the dome.
