Get out of the sun for an afternoon, and check out one of the most interesting, (and entirely new, rebuilt in 2012) attractions in Miami. The Science Museum is a massive, architecturally-stunning complex , or “Museum Park”, that is home to a whole array of family-friendly exhibits, the Space-Transit Planetarium, the Weintraub Observatory, and a wildlife center—all on the same fascinating campus! The museum is home to tons of exciting exhibits, as well as brand new temporary exhibits that rotate in and out. Be sure to check the website before your visit for the latest exhibit information. Here’s a look at the types of exhibits (both temporary and permanent) you might see on your trip:

MiaSci Sea Lab: An indoor and outdoor exhibit that gives visitors a look at an awesome Coral Aquaculture System, in which entire coral colonies can grow from mere fragments of coral that have been donated to the Science Museum by members of the Florida Marine Aquarium Society.

Moving Things: An up-close look at how things move from A to B, with a special look at such phenomenons as traffic, efficient packing (see how many things you can pack into a square meter!), turntables, and gyros.

Earth from Space: Magic Planet: This exhibit shows you what the Earth actually looks like from space, featuring a 4-foot digital sphere, touch screens and kiosks that demonstrate weather, futuristic visualizations, and a “playlist” of animations that show the earth at night, the 2004 Indonesian tsunami, and the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season.

Mangrove Coast: These photographs by Barry Fellman are a fascinating look at a place that looks entirely foreign, but are actually evidence of life on earth as seen in the intricate mangrove ecosystem that makes up the Biscayne Bay coastline.

Immersion Theatre: Explore the inside of the body of an infected astronaut using nano-robots, touch screens, and a series of virus-fighting games! Go inside a reconstruction of the major organs and into the very workings of DNA in this interactive exhibit that kids will love, and learn from.

The Miami Science Museum is a treat for learners and curious minds of all ages. Enjoy lunch on-site, and a visit to the Museum gift shop to take home a permanent memory of your trip!

Get the latest in science and technology straight from the experts in the field. Then, enjoy breakfast before joining Museum staff for related hands-on demonstrations and tours.A Presentation by Lynne A. 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[...]
