Museum of Science and History

Science and history come to life at MOSH! Students become scientists as they experiment in the extreme science lab and learn about the nature of the scientific world. Groups can learn about matter, energy, wild weather, and electricity during interactive physical science programs. The Museum offers a variety of interdisciplinary exhibits to explore too, such as Currents of Time, which lets students and scouts journey through Jacksonville's history, from 12,000 years ago, up to the 1960s. Special scout programs, including workshops and overnight camp-ins, are also available. Don’t forget to catch a show at the planetarium!
