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.

“A bit of a letdown”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

There was the potential for some nice exhibits, but I think that the museum might suffer from a lack of funding. I would love to see some donors contribute to help the museum build up

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

The Miami Science Museum seems a bit outdated and targets young children.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.
