In the Museum

There’s something for everyone at Miami Science Museum. One of the Museum’s key goals is to serve as a threshold into science and technology for visitors of all ages and backgrounds, inspiring a sense of wonder and excitement about the world we live in, and helping people see how science and technology can enrich their lives. From first-time visitors to those who come whenever they can, the Museum offers a changing mix of interactive exhibits, wildlife encounters, science theater, planetarium shows, science demos, camps, workshops and special events.
