At the top level, you can see mahi-mahis, hammerhead sharks, and beautiful devil rays as they glide through the water. You can also get a look at some of Miami’s different natural environments like mangroves, beaches, and coral reefs. If you head below, you can check out damselfish and other aquatic animals as scientists share their fascinating studies on marine wildlife. Finally, head to the bottom level and dive into the deep ocean where mysterious creatures like jellyfish roam in the darkness.

The Planetarium

The museum constantly hosts amazing shows, innovative science programs, and weekly laser light events featuring music from artists like Lady Gaga and David Bowie.

Frost Museum’s North and West Wings

At the north and west wings in the Frost Museum of Science, you can learn about our birds as well as the once-illusive notions of flight and space travel. After that, participate in a part lab-part exhibition that highlights the different challenges engineers face on a regular basis while putting your minds to the test. Throughout spring 2018, you can even accompany Nat Geo’s own Zeb Hogan as he brings you on an adventure in search of enormous monster-fish that lurk in the deep waters on our planet.
