We traveled seven months last year with our ASTC reciprocal membership and we were happy with this museum. Ecology is a science which is often overlooked by science museums. We were able to visit and learn about the Everglades, estuaries and ocean habitats around the Miami area. The museum looks like it has space to grow. I think they do a great job focusing on kids and families but I feel they could focus more on young adults when adding future content and exhibits.

This is a five star facility with three and half to four star effort when it comes to exhibition. Some of them are amazing and thorough, others are a little sparse. That being said, the museum is worth a trip and a membership. There are many beautiful experiences to be had with kids and a lot of good information on wildlife, ourselves, the stars, ecosystem, robotics, etc. The planetarium is a must-go. Service is great and super helpful. Food options for kids adults vegetarians vegans etc. I have been here many times and find each trip enjoyable. I would suggest the museum's fixed exhibitions go deeper and litter the facts deep into each display. :)

The museum left me starving for real science. Since the closing of the old science museum, I was so eager to explore the new one -especially knowing how many additional millions the Frost's so graciously put forth to ensure its completion. I anticipated only greatness given the amount of time and resources necessitated. To my grave disappointment, the exhibits are questionably vast and bare and they don't inspire the least bit of critical thinking. There was something troubling about the lack of representation of crucial present-day science topics. Nothing about evolution, nothing about our climate. Regardless of beliefs, it's science's place to present factual data and evidence. One of the weirdest things was the absence of labeling. There is 'piece' in particular, a beautiful jellyfish tank that had not a single placard on it, not even to identify the species of the jellyfish. For those who have gone or plan to go, they are commonly known as Moon Jellyfish, and the engineering behind a jellyfish fish tank is very cool considering jellyfish require a constant current and water flow to keep them suspended and allow their tentacles to flow and capture food. I'm not saying shouldn't go, you should see it for yourself. But my experience was truly disheartening.

Such a cool museum. The building and grounds are beautiful and right on the water. All of the exhibits were well done and interesting. We weren't able to do the space aspect but will definitely be returning for that. If you have kids this museum has tons of interactive exhibits they will love.

I loved it. Easy to get there on metro mover and not spend a dime with parking, It's a place most for kids but adults can enjoy it too. Lots of educational content about Florida's life, you can learn a bit of everything. They also have different & interesting exhibits about the human body and sea life. The planetarium show is awesome but can make one a bit dizzy. My favorite area is easily the rooftop, what a view of Miami! Overall, I will be visiting at least once a month while my membership lasts
