OMSI, once of the hard-to-reach Washington Park, now part of the hard-to-reach under-the-Marquam-Bridge, has long captured the imagination of visitors everywhere. A unique museum, it makes learning fun, using a hands-on approach to the discovery of art and science. Think an amusement park with intelligence. Its new, spacious grounds, affordable admissions costs, the 360° OMNIMAX routunda theatre and the planetarium make this museum one the biggest must-see attractions on the West Coast.
Pros: Fun for everyone, Educational, Affordable
Cons: Difficult to get to, Expensive snack area
