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.

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...

I'm glad that our visit was part of our South Florida Adventure Pass, as I would not have been happy to pay $14.95 for what is there. Perhaps its because they are closing / moving at the end of the month, I sure hope so....More

Was quite expensive for a museum that didn't have much. A couple of exhibits were out of order and everything looked as if it were a tap from being destroyed. Lots of running children with no home training whatsoever. The front desk was nice but...More

Everything is outdated. The new science museum is being built in down town. It's more like stepping back into the 60's. I can't think of a single thing there that could be worth your time.
