Miami New Times' Description

Science is all about getting hands on with Mother Nature -- and that's the premise behind the Miami Science Museum, where kids of all ages can get experimental. This Miami landmark has been schooling the city on all things science for more than 60 years. In 2015, they'll move to a facility in downtown, but until then, they're open for summer camps, planetarium shows, hurricane education and lots of other exhibits and ongoing events.

Merchant's Description

Miami Science Museum aims to make a difference in people’s lives by inspiring them to appreciate the impact that science and technology can have on every facet of our world. For over 60 years, the Museum's award-winning educational programs, family-focused exhibits, historic planetarium, and rehabilitative Wildlife Center and Clinic have enriched locals and tourists alike. In 2015, the legacy continues, when we move to a new world-class, state-of-the-art facility and become the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science in the heart of downtown Miami. The Museum will remain operational at its current location on South Miami Avenue until completion of the new building.

    It's shame to have a Science Museum that charges so much, a family of 4 would have to pay about U$50 to see an old kind of third world class science museum.
    Washington DC, and New York have the best options and all free.
    Paris an London offer free days on the most important museums and this ideas just can't make their way here in souht Florida. Maybe I'll have to move from Miami... More >>

    No information on their website. Is there really a comedy show?
