Bring The Kids.
Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science
Satisfy your curiosity at the Museum of Science – a family-friendly hub of science and technology. Exhibits and shows span the ancient history of dinosaurs to NASA’s latest discoveries about distant planets. Learn about environmental conservation at the Wildlife Center, where kids can encounter alligators, snakes, lizards and Florida birds of prey. Explore the human body and battle viruses with interactive games in Immersion Theatre, or push and pull your way to understanding the laws of physics in the Newton’s Notions exhibit. The surround-sound planetarium offers music-filled laser light shows (as well as programs for the hearing and visually impaired), and if the skies are clear, visitors can get a closer look at the real stars and planets through the observatory telescope. The organization owns more than 60,000 artifacts and, as a science affiliate of the Smithsonian, presents major traveling exhibitions. Past highlights include “Amazon Voyage,” “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition” and “The Dinosaurs of China.” (more…)
