At the Miami Science Museum, visitors can dance on a huge Energy Dance Floor that captures their energy and converts it to electricity! They can rocket themselves ten feet in the air on the Human YoYo! There are live science demonstrations and theater shows daily, including mind-blowing laser shows!
The Miami Science Museum, a Smithsonian Institute Affiliate, also features a Wildlife Center with rare birds of prey and reptiles. Everyone will enjoy the brand new Energy Tracker exhibit that features an interconnected trail of hands-on exhibits. These exhibits explore everything from basic energy principles to the future of renewable energy.
Kids will love the Planetarium's SPITZ “Space Transit Planetarium” star projector, which is capable of accurately reproducing the stars and planets as seen from anywhere on Earth at any time during the year!
The Miami Science Museum features some awesome and always changing exhibits. In the Hurricanes exhibit, climb inside the cockpit of a real P-3 Hurricane Hunter airplane, construct a house and test its strength against a storm, and see remarkable film and artifacts from the most deadly storm to affect our community in recent history, Hurricane Andrew.
The Miami Planetarium opened its doors to the public on November 4, 1966 and has entertained and educated children of all ages about astronomy and the wonders of the night sky ever since. The Planetarium, home to Jack Horkheimer's Star Gazer, the world’s first and only weekly television series on naked-eye astronomy, houses a 65-foot diameter domed projection screen with 231 seats.
The Planetarium at the Miami Science Museum also features surround sound, video projection, lasers, and breathtaking four story tall multi-media imagery. Unlike any other in South Florida, the Museum’s Planetarium is a unique setting for bringing the stars and planets indoors in animated live star shows and music-filled laser light shows.

Fieber, Ph.D.Associate Professor, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric ScienceJoin Dr. Lynne Fieber for an inside look at her research on Aplysia and a personal encounter with these whimsical creatures. The National Resource for Aplysia on the campus of the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science is the only place in the world where sea slugs, Aplysia californica are cultured and raised for research purposes. The simple design of the brain of Aplysia makes it a good research subject that can shed light on how our own minds work. Aplysia from the facility are used in experiments that help us to understand how we learn and what memories are.Where:Miami Science Museum3280 South Miami AvenueMiami Florida, 33129When:Every other Wednesday at 10:30amAugust 18th September 15thSeptember 1st September 29th[...]
