Heading to Miami with kids-? I suggest you spend a few hours at the Phillip and Patricia Frost Science Museum. It makes for a great family fun day. Frost Science helps connect people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy the unique world of science and technology. Their vision is to create compelling STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and math) that inspires learning and innovation and enables people to explore real, rigorous science. We spent several hours here and could have easily spent more (especially if the kids were a little older). If you are in Miami and looking for something besides the beach and food scene, then museums are the place to go!

Deb sure to get tickets to a show in the Planetarium
If you enjoy planetariums then this one will be one not to miss. The Frost Science Museum Planetarium is an upgrade compared to other planetariums I have enjoyed. It is one of only 13 like it in the world! The shows range from space trips to deep dives and feel so real.

  • 250 seats
  • Six 3D-capable projectors
  • It uses a 16-million-color 8K visual system
  • The dome is tilted forward at 23.5 degrees, allowing a 67-foot span to fill your field of vision, creating a nearly 360-degree view of the screen
