At OMSI, we believe that people of all ages and stages of life should have the opportunity to ask questions

and look for solutions, to make a difference and imagine a better world.

One of our leading priorities is your confidence in the responsible and effective management of the resources

you’ve entrusted to us. For more than 60 years, OMSI has operated without state or local revenue for our

ongoing operations, relying instead on our members, sponsorships from corporations, and the support of

individuals and foundations. We know that there are numerous worthy organizations that rely on similar support

and are profoundly grateful for your dedication to the OMSI mission.

As you know, OMSI has not been immune to the effects of the weakened economy. We took a hard look at

our resources and made many difficult, but necessary, changes to reach our financial goals. As a result, we are

pleased to have concluded our 2009 fiscal year (FY09) in a positive financial position, assuring our donors that

we match the generosity of their investment with responsible accountability.

We’re proud of our history as a community resource for generations of families, providing a continuum of

experience that plays a vital role in our region’s growth. Your commitment allows us to continue building our

capacity as a lifelong learning center, initiating and enhancing programs tailored to every age group.

We can’t put a price on the look in a child’s eyes when they experience a magical moment of discovery, or

quantify what it means to a senior citizen to be able to speak live with an astronaut in space. However, we do

know these things happen at OMSI as a direct result of your generosity.

Thank you for your support and recognition of the value of lifelong learning. Together we are OMSI, and the

possibilities are endless.

S c i e n c e M e e t s A r t

In FY09, the stunning exhibit Da Vinci: The Genius brought a fascinating examination of science and art to OMSI. The exhibit explored the art and science of one of history’s most

complex, visionary minds and featured full-scale replicas of machines, anatomy, and inventions based on drawings found in da Vinci’s personal notebooks. Sponsored in large

part by Lufthansa German Airlines, Chevron Corporation, Mentor Graphics, and The Standard, the exhibit drew 240,500 visitors.

Da Vinci: The Genius also offered a compelling scientific dissection of his most well-known masterpiece. The Secrets of Mona Lisa exhibit was created by scientific engineer and

photographer Pascal Cotte, who invented a 240-million pixel camera to photograph her in the Louvre. Cotte’s camera revealed the masterpiece in its original pigment colors and

unveiled 25 startling revelations. Among the discoveries, that da Vinci gave Mona Lisa eyebrows and eyelashes, there is lace on her dress, and the unusual position of her right

arm is because she holds up one side of a blanket.

OMSI’s da Vinci-themed Genius Gala included an appearance by Cotte, who traveled from France to share his remarkable findings with guests.

D a V i n c i C h a l l e n g e

OMSI put Leonardo da Vinci’s remarkable inventions to the test and invited 16 teams of youth and adult inventors from the region to put their minds to work and take part in the

Da Vinci Challenge. The teams were asked to build modern adaptations of his inventions using a renewable energy source-—air, water, solar, or human power.

M i n d b e n d e r M a n s i o n

The OMSI exhibit team designed, built, and presented the wonderfully puzzling Mindbender Mansion. Engaging puzzles, brainteasers, and interactive challenges encouraged

more than 145,000 visitors to exercise their problem-solving skills and think creatively. Produced in partnership with IBM and Planar Systems, this original OMSI exhibit is now

available to museums across the country, and most recently opened at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa, Florida.

R e n o vat i o n s o f S c i e n c e S t o r e a n d O M N I M A X

In FY09, the OMSI Science Store and OMNIMAX Dome Theater underwent extensive renovations, significantly improving the quality of visitor experience.

Science Store renovations included new carpeting, lighting, fixtures, signage, ceilings, and more. These improvements and re-merchandising helped the Science Store to exceed

its post-remodel budget by 8%.

Renovations to the OMNIMAX Dome Theater greatly enhanced visitor comfort and viewing experience, and included new seats, flooring, carpeting, lighting,

screen cleaning, and more.

Both renovations were made possible through grants from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust and James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation.

O M N I M A X : E d u c at i o n a n d E n t e r ta i n m e n t

In partnership with the Pepsi Bottling Company, the OMNIMAX Dome Theater offered a dynamic mix of themes to more than 194,000 visitors in FY09, with films appealing to a

wide variety of age groups. The inspirational documentary Wild Ocean explored the interplay between humans and the endangered ocean ecosystem. Dinosaurs Alive! brought

dinosaurs back to life and uncovered evidence that their descendants still walk among us. Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs offered ancient wonders, historic intrigue, and a

modern-day forensic adventure. Adrenaline Rush explored the science of courage and risk from the soaring cliffs of Norway to the American schoolyard.

L i f e L o n g L e a r n i n g

Successful programs designed to draw new audiences continued to grow in FY09. The monthly Science Pub discussion series expanded beyond Portland and Eugene to include

Corvallis, and a second Portland location was established at the McMenamins Bagdad Theater. The popular $2 Days program, offering $2 admission the first Sunday of every month,

gained another year of sponsorship from Bank of America Foundation and The Standard, making OMSI’s resources accessible to more people in our community than ever before.

In FY09, OMSI added additional programming to connect with new audiences. Teen Science Night offers a free night at the museum with special programming and fun activities

created just for youth ages 13-18. This quarterly program includes a live DJ, Segway rides, a Science Café discussion, and an opportunity to experience the featured exhibit.

For the 21-and-over crowd, OMSI now offers the monthly OMSI After Dark. These entertaining and educational evenings allow adults to explore the museum in a child-free

environment complete with appetizers, wine, beer, and plenty of science fun.

K e n d a l l P l a n e ta r i u m : A N o r t h w e s t R e s o u r c e

In FY09, the Kendall Planetarium continued to offer the largest and most technologically advanced indoor planetarium experience in the Pacific Northwest. With the support of

FEI Company, 92,766 visitors of all ages enjoyed Star Parties, Space Shuttle launch viewings, daily planetarium shows, and weekend laser light shows.

A particularly popular show was U2: The Full-Dome Experience, an immersive digital presentation featuring rich computer renderings and abstract visuals choreographed to the

band’s award-winning music.

Extreme Planets took viewers on a tour of exotic places in the universe where science is stranger than any fiction.

In FY09, the planetarium debuted Starry Nights Live, with live presentations offering audiences the opportunity to ask questions, hone their astronomy skills, and learn where and

when to look for planets, constellations, shooting stars, the zodiac, and satellites.

OMSI is committed to operating more sustainably and has installed a Portland General Electric (PGE) plug-in vehicle charging station in its north parking lot. The OMSI installation

is one of five recently completed plug-in vehicle charging stations-—enough to charge 12 vehicles—in the Portland and Salem areas.

Fuel cell vehicles can potentially achieve zero tailpipe emissions and dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As part of OMSI’s mission to serve as a community resource

and educate the public on sustainability issues, the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Showcase brought these vehicles to the OMSI plaza where visitors could test drive and ride them,

and learn more about how this “green” technology fits into a clear air future.

Grace had the best time last week

at the “At the Seashore” camp at OMSI.

She brought home seashell bowls and

sand dollar treasures. Nowadays she tells

everybody she meets that she went to a

“big OMSI camp.” If you could have seen

how happy my little one was,

OMSI depends on the generous contributions of volunteers. These are people in their teens and well beyond who care deeply about

OMSI’s mission and are willing to give their time and personal attention to nearly every aspect of the museum’s operation—from the labs

to the administrative offices. They are the people who greet visitors and answer questions and whose willingness to share their love of

science learning infuses everything we do. FY09 = June 1, 2008–May 31, 2009

THANK YOU to our dedicated, multitalented, inspiring volunteers who gave 87,602 hours of service to OMSI.
