Celebrate Our Ocean!

Why should you care about the ocean? While oceans cover over 70% of Earth’s surface area, we have explored less than 10% this vast region to date. The ocean helps regulate the planet’s temperature and weather systems while providing valuable natural resources and nourishment to us. (Research provided by NOAA)

Be Brain Aware

As a museum, OMSI is lucky to have cultivated relationships with community partners like the Oregon Health & Science University. Twelve years ago OMSI began a partnership with OHSU's Brain Institute to promote their Brain Awareness Season. The season is a chance for OHSU to share the latest, most riveting knowledge about neuroscience through workshops, community activities, and a lecture series. The Brain Institue and OMSI hosted the twelth OHSU Brain Fair here at the museum earlier this month.
