Owner description: There is always something new happening at the Museum of Discovery and Science. Spend a day of discovery exploring hundreds of interactive exhibits including the new EcoDiscovery Center. Visitors can take a ride on the Everglades Airboat Adventure, experience hurricane force winds in the Storm Center, dig for fossils alongside a giant prehistoric megalodon, get close to a confrontation between a saber-toothed cat and an Imperial mammoth, and enjoy the playful antics of North American river otters in their two-story indoor/outdoor habitat. See exciting science demonstrations, and presentations by community experts. Discover the amazing Everglades in the Florida EcoScapes exhibit. Hang out with bats, turtles and sharks. Meet an alligator and be charmed by a 6-foot-long snake. Take a ride to Mars or soar through the skies in an FA-18 cockpit simulator or take a ride in the 7D simulator. And immerse yourself in a six-story-high film adventure at the AutoNation(R) IMAX 3D Theater, home of the BIGGEST screen in South Florida featuring IMAX with Laser. Whether you're two or 82 visit the Museum of Discovery and Science and enjoy a full day of family fun.

“Nice Place”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great on a rainy day. We walked around the exhibits, which were very interesting. They showed the habitate of some of the creatures that live in florida. They also have a I-Max theater which showed anmajor movie or a environmental short. They also gives science showes. It was a really good place to go when raining or bad weather when you can not use the beach.

“Take the kids”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Good place for hand-on science museum kind of stuff. Take the kids so you can pretend you are playing with the exhibits just to get their interest. If they get too bored, park them in the cafe and continue on your own,

“Home of IMAX here in Ft. Lauderdale”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is the place to take your kids in the day to see and discover great new scientific things and interact with a lot of features and watch an educational 3D IMAX movie. At night you can come back and enjoy a movie feature film like Batman or Spider Man or any other first run film on the large screens.
