Me and my SO went here out of sheer boredom and because we thought the Planetarium might be cool. It was one of the worst museums I've ever seen. VERY small. There was barely anything "science" about it. It was mostly broken down "hands on" exhibits and mostly about random things like Hurricane Andrew and NanoScience. There was also a section that showed sad looking snakes and reptiles, yeah the science museum turned into a random tiny zoo.
The Planetarium was okay. Honestly we were expecting more. Not counting the 5 minute introduction video, the rest was maybe 10 minutes and it was just showing us constellations. The guy who was running the show was shining a huge red laser pointer on the stars and constellations showing us where they were and honestly the stars were so dim, I barely saw what we was pointing at. Also morons kept getting up and leaving and using their cellphones despite the instructor telling people not to.
We didn't realize this was a kids science museum until we started walking around, there wasn't anything for adults to do beside the Planetarium. Even if I was a kid I would not want to go here. More than half the exhibits were broken, but they were all lame anyways. We walked through the entire thing in 30 minutes and we were like "Is this seriously it?". I've been spoiled too much by COSI (Center of Science and Industry) in Columbus, Ohio, which is HUGE and amazing. The Miami Science Museum wasn't ANYTHING like COSI.
Also they only have 4 restrooms and 2 of the 4 were out of order.
I should also mention, that throughout the entire time we were there "Gangnam Style" played on loop at one of the exhibits where kids were dancing around. Like I said, nothing science-y about this place at all.
