There is always something new happening at the Museum of Discovery and Science. Spend a day of discovery exploring hundreds of interactive exhibits including the new EcoDiscovery Center. Visitors can take a ride on the Everglades Airboat Adventure, experience hurricane force winds in the Storm Center, dig for fossils alongside a giant prehistoric megalodon, get close to a confrontation between a saber-toothed cat and an Imperial mammoth, and enjoy the playful antics of North American river otters in their two-story indoor/outdoor habitat. See exciting science demonstrations and discover the amazing Everglades in the Florida EcoScapes exhibit where you can hang out with bats, turtles and sharks. Meet an alligator and be charmed by a 6-foot-long snake.

Test your pilot skills in nine cockpit simulators or take a simulated trip to Mars in the newly expanded To Fly exhibit. The highlight of the exhibit expansion is a new state-of-the art 7D capsule theater that takes visitors on an exhilarating flight. This new exhibit experience uses 3D film, moving seats, and multi-sensory effects to create an unforgettable and exciting adventure.

No visit is ever complete without experiencing an IMAX film adventure on the five-story-high screen at AutoNation IMAX 3D Theater, home of the BIGGEST screen in South Florida. With an 80 ft. x 60 ft. screen and 32,000 watts of digital surround sound broadcast from 56 speakers, The IMAX Experience is truly an unparalleled fusion of sight and sound.

Don't forget to check out the Explore Store where you'll find lots of educational and intriguing games, toys and books and other unique gifts. At every turn, the Museum of Discovery and Science invites you to discover the world of scientific wonders and beyond.

Whether you’re two or 82, visit the Museum of Discovery and Science and enjoy a full day of family fun!

Comments about Smart Destinations :

My teenage kids loved this, but at only [$] admission (plus many coupons that were available everywhere), it's actually cheaper to do on your own without the Go Card.

Comments about Smart Destinations :

We really enjoyed this science museum. We learned a lot. The imax movie was great. It's just a little far from Miami. But it's worth the trip.
