Fathers Day free admission dads Tampa MOSI

Want to give your dad the gift of time with his favorite kiddo (that's you, but don't tell your sister) and let him have an experience to remember — all for free? The Museum of Science and Industry is letting all dads in for free this weekend (with a paid admission, of course).

Science-type dads can Be The Astronaut — this exhibit lets him pilot a rocket launch, navigate a moon rover and then navigate a Mars rover. From there take him over to the Saunders Planetarium. MOSI's renovated it, so the show's all new. 

Sporty-type dads can try the ropes course, and, on Saturday, he can watch as the Tampa Tarpons host the Florida State League All-Star Game on George Steinbrenner Field. 

And you? You devoted, wonderful child, you get to bask in the glow of being a thoughtful, awesome child. 

4801 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa | June 16-17: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. | 813-987-6000 | Get tickets here.
