10 Reasons To Visit Miami’s Frost Science Museum
Phillip and Patricia Frost Science Museum
Why should you visit Miami’s newly opened Frost Science Museum, you ask? Well, the Magic City isn’t necessarily known for its learning-driving establishments. We’re so thrilled that there’s a modern, state-of-the-art home for all things science in the bustling streets of Downtown Miami. Come learn something!
LASERsHOW: Light, Color and Geometry invites you to experience lasers like you’ve never before. We love lasers and think you should, too.
Albert Einstein established the theoretical foundations for lasers decades before they were invented in the 1960s. Today, lasers fuel our imagination, but also have real life military, medical, telecommunications and space travel applications. In our exhibition LASERsHOW: Light, Color and Geometry, we deconstruct the experience of a traditional laser show—a way to celebrate the beauty of science to inspire the next generations of scientists. #ItsScienceMiami
2. Their 3-level Aquarium is a masterpiece.
The Vista, The Dive, and The Deep will give you chills.
3. A cutting-edge Planetarium.
The 250-seat Frost Planetarium uses 16-million-color 8K projection. Asteroid and Dynamic Earth are both must sees.
4. So much Jellyfish!
Don’t worry, they’re behind glass and won’t sting.
5. The Architecture, of course.
Built with sustainability in mind and envisioned by Grimshaw Architects, winners of over 170 international design awards.
6. The Science Barge
You may not see it at first glance, but the innovative lab is there, floating on Biscayne Bay and setup as an education center. Jump aboard!
We are happy to announce that the Miami Science Barge is now the Science Barge at Frost Science, an official member of the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science family! Along with a new name, Frost Science has big plans in store for your favorite floating environmental lab while continuing its mission of marine exploration and conservation. As an environmental education center, the Science Barge serves as a natural extension of the topics and learning opportunities offered by our museum’s Aquarium and science exhibitions. A major focal point for STEM education, the barge will also be part of our citizen science program, which offers the community an opportunity to connect with ongoing research projects and the work of scientists. The Science Barge can be found in Museum Park, floating on Biscayne Bay. Learn more on our blog at frostscience.org/blog.
