Head to the Miami Museum of Science and it will answer all your questions for you! It's is the place to go for all those inquisitive minds who want to know why things are the way they are, and how things work.

Ever been asked "why is the sky blue?" You might just find out if you ask the friendly staff at the museum!

There are a number of exhibits at the Miami Museum of Science that will cover a whole range of fascinating topics.  Not all of the exhibits last, so make sure you head there quick before you miss out!

Exhibits have included getting lost in the Amazon in "Amazon Voyage" where you can explore the diversities of that amazing river in South America.  "Sea Lab" allows kids to explore those beautiful coral reefs and get up close to some of the creatures that live in there.

Space...the final frontier....and a great place to explore during your time at the museum! Not only are there often exhibits on this mysterious part of the universe, but there is a planetarium for you to really explore space with! 

There is an observatory with a telescope that you can look at the planets and the stars with your very own eyes. There are multi-media experiences that tell the stories of the stars, as well as live star shows and light shows! 

There is so much to learn and enjoy at the Miami Museum of Science - so what are you waiting for!

    Time your visit for the right exhibits and it's great. The usual displays are OK but nothing special.

    This place has had better times, it's been there for almost 50 years. It is starting to get run down and most of everything is outdated. So glad they are building a new one by the bay in downtown. it will open in 2015, and i really hope it is better than this.

    Horrible. Everything is outdated and the majority of the displays are inoperable. Wildlife area is depressing and gloomy as is the rest of the establishment.
