This was the first place we visited this museum. First the bad: PARKING!! It just seems that Miami's planners have a serious problem with the concept of adequate parking (Just look at the Marlins' stadium parking mess) and this is the main reason why I would think twice, three times and more before going back to the Museum. Parking is a nightmare. It took us over 30 minutes driving around and enduring the occasional moron, an otherwise decent person who turns into an unkind driver when faced with frustration, until we finally found parking.
Fees are on the expensive side considering what is inside. Don't take me wrong, a child may enjoy the exhibits specially the dinosaurs but $36 for three people is steep all things considered.
Service was spotty. I called out security to ask about parking but the guy seemed to troubled by the sun to drive his bike and direct us. When we left the Museum about three hours later the guy was still under the same tree so perhaps he moved or perhaps not, who knows.....
Some details might be worth considering such as a sign indicating that an elevator is out or order? Some of us were waiting for the rear elevator until it finally dawned on us that the elevator was not working. Why not place a sign immediately?
If you a visitor with children then a visit to this Museum is worth considering but be warned about the traffic monster and be ready to test your patience. Local? I guess is about likes and dislikes. We liked the Museum for one visit. We just don't see a reason to return anytime soon.
