Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Fascinating day out”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I took our curious 8 year old son to the museum and we were totally absorbed for over 5 hours. The staff were enthusiastic, knowlegible and pitched their delivery perfectly. The interactive exhibits were engaging, varied and focused on having childlike fun. The individual sections were just the right size to impart a good basic knowledge without getting bogged down in detail. The teen section was well equipped and a good place just to hang out.

“A bit of a letdown”
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”
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The Miami Science Museum seems a bit outdated and targets young children.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”
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”
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.
