Owner description: The Frost Museum of Science aims to make a difference in people's lives by inspiring them to appreciate the impact that science and technology can have on every facet of our world. For over 60 years, the Museum's award-winning educational programs, family-focused exhibits, historic planetarium, and rehabilitative Wildlife Center and Clinic have enriched locals and tourists alike. In 2015, the legacy continues, when we move to a new world-class, state-of-the-art facility in the heart of downtown Miami. The Museum will remain operational at its current location on South Miami Avenue until completion of the new building. Frost Museum of Science is accredited by the American Association of Museums and is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. The museum is located at 3280 South Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33129. The Museum is open every day from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Admission is free for children under 3; 10.95 for students (with valid ID), seniors (62+) and children 3 - 12; 14.95 for adults. Parking is free. The Museum is funded with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The Miami Science Museum seems a bit outdated and targets young children. We did enjoy the aquarium exhibit. The fish and coral were beautiful.

“For the love of Science”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Our visit to this place was a last minute thing and we do not regret the time we spent here. Rather the planetarium turned out to be an enchanting experience in itself, very romantic too. It was like revisiting our childhood. The place was not very huge but the amount of information we got was. A great place to be.

“Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

It is a good place, maybe too much of information for the littler ones, but is a good way to involved our kids with interesting things. The star show is amazing and the laser show is very funny. I definitely recommend Miami Science Museum.

“Great way to spend several hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We were very impressed with this science centre. It's very unassuming from the outside but there are lots to see and do inside. It's not huge but there are many shows, including the planetarium during the day that you can spend many hours there. We stayed right until closing and rushed through the last couple of exhibits.

We have membership to the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto so we were able to get in here for free so it was a great afternoon for us. Well worth the trip, especially if you have kids.

“Great for kids and kids at heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

It was a fun experience even though a large portion of the museum is temporary due to their upcoming move to a new location. The Planetarium is the right combination of fun and educational. The wildlife exhibits are fresh and fun and the underwater exhibits were definitelya sight to see.
