Agate to Opal: Gems of the Northwest

OMSI has been a hands-on science museum from the beginning, but it may surprise some people that we also feature collections! In fact OMSI houses over 30,000 pieces including natural history, ethnographic and historical objects. We also partner with other museums and institutions to bring their collections to the public.

"Nature vs. Nurture: A Story of Adoption, Reunion, Neuroscience and Shock Therapy"


How do we become the people we are? Is it in the way we were raised, or in our genes? Or both?


In this unique presentation, Dr. Larry Sherman weaves stories about his recently discovered biological family - including five siblings who all grew up in very different circumstances - with discussions about how our genes and environment influence our brains and, ultimately, who we are.


Celebrate Sustainably

Come with friends and family. Leave with tools and ideas.
