The 50-year-old campus, located on Jacksonville’s Southbank, aims to attract exhibits that engage visitors of all ages. 

The proposed changes are expected to at least double the number of people the museum can serve annually from 229,239 in 2017 to an estimated 468,000 by 2023, the museum told

The Museum launched a capital campaign called MOSH 2.0: Expanding the Capacity to Inspire Innovation in January.
