Overview

The current location of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is closed and will re-open at its new location in downtown Miami's Museum Park in summer 2016. The museum will continue to activate in and around South Florida via its "Out & About with Frost Science" outreach program, bringing educational science experiences to the community. The new Frost Science will be structured around a lushly landscaped indoor and outdoor Living Core Aquarium of terrestrial and aquatic environments, featuring a Gulf Stream Aquarium experience totaling over 500,000 gallons of salt water. The facility will also feature the state-of-the-art, full-dome Frost Planetarium, the Knight Learning Center, Innovation Center and Cafe, and an Exploration Center featuring permanent interactive exhibits. The Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is funded with the support of Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.

My eight year-old grandson spent five non-stop hours and he was still going strong at closing time. Every venue was interesting for me and lots of fun for my grandson. Don't miss the "River of Grass" exhibit, even if you have to wait. Many fish...More

Loved visiting this museum as a member. Science rocks and we encourage all to get involved. Will bring ALL grandchildren to experience this museum. Could be a bit more organized and the Planetarium is a Must Do

This was a nice place to take the kids (ours was 4 years old). The laser show was fun. Even with the long line, viewing the moon with the telescope was amazing (and worth the wait). Looking forward for 2016 to see the new place.

It is a good museum for kids... But I was expecting it to be a museum for adults/family. It's more like for kids and small. Very informative - but it was set-up for kids & I didn't enjoy it as much as they did...
