Portland Museums and Galleries
Oregon Museum of Science & Industry
1945 S.E. Water Ave., Hosford-Abernethy
For obvious reasons, the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry is a kid’s dream: planetarium, check, robots, check, giant digital globe, check. There’s even a fast attack submarine docked on the river (kids can climb aboard and tour it). What’s more surprising is that it's also a cool destination for grown-ups; the 21+ “OMSI After Dark” program brings in special science-based programming for adults to enjoy over beer and cocktails.
