We visited on a Sunday and had a great time. There are interactive exhibits, animals to see, planetarium and science shows. All of it is included in the price (which is quite reasonable compared to other local science museums.) My family and I spent over 3 hours there and could have spent a few more (2 adults, 7 yr.old and... More

I've been going to this museum for the last 5 years with my son. He's 7 and we both always have fun when we go here. I know the new museum is coming, but this one is still worth a visit. My favorite thing about this museum is the shows. The planetarium is great, the shell guy is a shell... More

The planetarium movie was just right for our 7 year old, not too long and aimed at young adults. the price was right and we loved meeting the birds of prey in person. A good experience, and more than we expected, It was easy to fill a few hours with hands on fun and the staff made it very enjoyable.... More

Beautiful place with interative exhibits and very interesting lectures. Be sure to go to the planetarium. The new bilding will be fantastic.

While on vacation in Miami Beach, my 9-year old and 13-year old wanted to go to this museum (we have been to other cool science museums in other cities). I found a Groupon online which made it a great deal for an afternoon of entertainment. We watched a movie in the planetarium about the planets (which was very outdated as... More

I have visited the Museum of Science hundreds of times since I was little. I had not visited in years, so I decided to see what if anything had changed. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. The new aquarium they had been advertising is nothing more than a few saltwater fish tanks. I've seen larger ones in people's homes, and most... More

Agree with some other reviews, far from everything and not enough to see and do. The only thing of interest was a nice Planatarium presentation. In their defense, they are constructing a new museum and a lot of exhibits were under construction and empty.

Far from everywhere... And very few things to see. If you miss the planetarium schedule, it is finished... 3 hours to wait for next show !!!

it's pretty cheap, but the exhibits and little "games" are silly and not very interesting. Maybe the new location coming soon will bring improvements, but for now, I'd pass.

Can't wait to see their new larger building in 2016. This is worth the trip if you like hands on museums. The show of the galaxy was good, but noisy due to babies, but it s expected since it is a family place.
