MOSI Now Offering Pay For A Day Deal

At the price of regular general admission, every MOSI guest will be given a Discovery Passport—the Pay for a Day deal card that gives them free unlimited admission to the Museum of Science & Industry through the end of 2017.

At $26.95 for adults, $25.95 for seniors (60+), and $20.95 for children (3-12), MOSI’s Pay for a Day, Rest of the Year Free ticket is the most affordable Pay for a Day offer in all of Tampa Bay.

With no blockout dates, Discovery Passport holders can spend all of 2017 immersing themselves in Florida’s only IMAX® DOME Theatre, discovering the night sky in the planetarium, and controlling tomorrow’s tech with real drones and 3D printing.

Families can come back again and again to ride a bike across a tightrope, touch a real meteorite, and hang on through a simulated hurricane.

Floridians also get Florida Resident Special savings when they upgrade from a Pay for a Day ticket to a full MOSI Membership. Full Memberships add even more benefits, including discounts on camps, programs, and shopping; free parking; free or discounted admission to more than 450 science centers and children’s museums worldwide; and 12 months of unlimited visits to MOSI.

No other discounts apply, and the Pay for a Day offer does not include special engagement exhibits and films, or separately ticketed activities such as the roller coaster simulator or Sky Trail® Ropes Course. MOSI’s Pay for a Day, Rest of the Year Free discount offer goes on sale February 25 at and the MOSI Ticket Office and will only be available for a limited time.
MOSI is located at 4801 E Fowler Ave. in Tampa. Visit
