Hurricane Room at MOSI

For many of our new Freshmen, I expect the evacuation and canceled classes of the last two days were your first brush with a hurricane or tropical storm. Possibly you were freaked out before the storm and maybe a little disappointed afterward when Fay swerved across the state and didn't even bother us with a few raindrops.

So you may be wondering what a hurricane is like. If so, take some time to visit MOSI (the Museum of Science and Industry) in Tampa. Among other cool exhibits, MOSI features a Gulf Coast Hurricane Room that allows you to experience 74 mph winds. In addition, MOSI has a planetarium, a flight simulator, and an IMAX Dome Theater (way cooler than regular IMAX theaters), and more. Check out the new exhibits and events (like opening night party for The Dark Knight at the DOME theater).
