MOSH, the Museum of Science and History, is located in Jacksonville, Florida along the Southbank Riverwalk. It is Jacksonville's most visited museum, and focuses on local history and science exhibitions. MOSH features the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium, three floors of permanent exhibitions, a changing main exhibition every quarter.
The Museum of Science and History, or MOSH, first operated in 1948 as the Jacksonville Children's Museum in Riverside in a Victorian mansion. In 1969, the museum moved downtown to a more centralized location along the Southbank. The Jacksonville Children's Museum was renamed the Jacksonville Museum of Arts and Sciences in 1977. The museum didn't become the Museum of Science and History, or otherwise known as MOSH, until 1988 which is also when the Alexander Brest Planetarium was added. A 2,400 square foot suite of classrooms opened on the first floor of the museum in 2009, and in 2010, the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium was unveiled inside the completely renovated Alexander Brest Science Theater. MOSH was named Best Museum and Best Educational Camp by Jax4Kids in 2013.
