The Museum of Science & History is seeking $80 million in public, private and community funding to renovate and expand its 50-year-old campus on Jacksonville’s Southbank. MOSH said the project will expand square footage from 77,000 square feet to 120,000 square feet, reorient the entry toward the St. Johns River and enhance the range and capacities for exhibits, installations, programming, educational alignment and immersive experiences with the latest technology. MOSH said the improvements will include a café on the park; a rooftop conference center and event space; and “Maker Spaces” and innovation labs. The exhibition areas will increase by 200 percent and will showcase Northeast Florida’s cultural, natural and innovation ecosystems, it said. Interactive displays, such as the River Table and simulated aquifer system, will provide guests with experiential learning opportunities. The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium also will also be renovated.
The Museum of Science & History offers a dynamic backdrop for your next event. Imagine introducing your new business plan on the planetarium’s 60-foot dome or ringing in the New Year on the MOSH rooftop as fireworks* light up the skyline. The possibilities are endless!
