Patricia And Phillip Frost Museum Of Science, Miami Reviews - Write a Review
I was very impressed by the museum. Loved the way the aquarium is set up so you have 3 different perspectives on the fish. The jellyfish exhibits were magical. The views of the bay are second to none and absolutely beautiful, especially on the day we were there. Also had fun dancing on the light up floor. Great job to everyone and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Even the gift shop was fun!!
The only redeeming quality of my visit was the experience of the architecture and location which afforded beautiful views of the bay, Government Cut, the city, etc. Everything else was very disappointing. Their two-floor exhibit on vision consisted of several directly lit artifacts in an otherwise ever-so-slightly relatively dim room, presumably to set a mood. Examples include printouts of the exact same figures you would find on a Google image search on "color blindness test" and pictures that were printed in an interesting arc format (I don't know what the appropriate name to call it is because this section was unlabeled, and I am not sure what the point was but it may have been related to depth of field). To me, the most ridiculous example was a square area partially bordered by walls containing multicolored vertical columns lit by an overhead lamp that changed colors, thus changing the colors of the vertical columns (think how a multicolored flashlight might change the color of your room). In retrospect, many times there was nothing intrinsically wrong with the objects; however, there was no significant text associated with them that one could decipher learning points. I include the most objective example that I collected yesterday in the attached pictures of the process of landing an airplane. Absolutely every one of these slides was incorrect. It seems like they got a video of a jet landing and asked a second grader to make up what they think is going on but did not consult anyone to fact check. Aviation is one topic that I know well, so why should I trust that I can learn anything about any of the other exhibits I know little about? Overall, I thought that the museum was aesthetically beautiful but ultimately without any real substance related to science. I do not believe that any reasonably educated person can go there to actually learn anything. If your children are young enough, they might get stimulated to learn about something new, but the exhibits themselves are either overly superficial, devoid of facts altogether, or riddled with misinformation.
This place is magnificent I loved the old museum. I grew up going there being from Florida. This new museum is fantastic. The Me Lab is such a fun place for kids plus the Oculus is beautiful seeing the sharks and fishes circling around. The exhibits are fun and very educational and the Planetarium shows are a great experience. I've been to this museum many times since it opened and i bring as many people I can and I always have a great time. I think this is one of Miami's Gems.
Joined the young patrons membership program and I am really enjoying this museum so far. It is a young museum so it is enduring its fair share of growing pains, such as elevators and figuring out the best use of each space, but overall the programming is superb and the staff is lovely. Hopefully as it grows the sea animal encounters will get better and better. The oculus view into the large tank is great but there is not yet many fishes to view. I have high hopes form this museum and I think it will bring a great deal more traffic to the park next door.
Amazing museum! First time visiting for the summer time of 2017. There’s so much to see, and they’ve got children section which my kids loved. This is the place to go with family and friends, will be returning 👏🏻🤓😁
