Museum of Science winding down its Grove stay
|The new museum.|
The museum, which opened in 1960 on three acres of the historic Vizcaya complex, has served as a destination over several generations. It has evolved through the years, becoming a place where South Floridians have discovered a love for science and technology and where memories have been created.
You may remember the Space Transit Planetarium; Jack Horkheimer’s “Star Gazers,” a weekly TV series on naked-eye astronomy; the Sloth welcoming visitors on their journey down US 1; and the iconic Pan Am globe in the lobby.
You will have a number of special occasions to visit the museum before it closes:
Friday, August 7, 8 pm to 1 am - Fabulous First Friday laser shows at the museum’s Planetarium will be extended to a second night of laser magic and music on the following night. Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children for each show.

In 2016, the Museum will continue to inspire visitors in a new state-of-the-art facility designed by Grimshaw Architects currently under construction at Museum Park, in the heart of downtown Miami. The Museum will be structured around a lushly landscaped indoor and outdoor Living Core of terrestrial and aquatic environments, featuring a Gulf Stream aquarium experience totaling over 500,000 gallons of salt water. The facility will also feature a state-of-the-art full dome Planetarium, the Knight Learning Center, Innovation Center and Cafe, and an Exploration Center featuring permanent interactive exhibits: Feathers to the Stars and The River of Grass.
