Hey teachers, Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry is giving free admission to any teacher to see Sea Monsters Revealed and MOSI's general exhibits for the entire month of May, a $24 value. Sea Monsters Revealed is a traveling exhibit that opened in March to display the world's largest collection of "plastinated sea creatures" put on by the creative team behind the Bodies show. Any teacher in the state of Florida with valid school ID gets admitted free. It doesn't include IMAX films, events or the ropes course/zip line, but teachers will receive a swag bag filled with goodies and coupons (while supplies last). MOSI is at 4801 E Fowler Ave. in Tampa. Regular admission is $18.95 for adults and $12.95 for ages 2-12. (813) 987-6000, mosi.org. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne
