The Haunted Happy Hour: The Science of Halloween event will host Miami’s young professional community from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 20. While mingling with other undead, guests can tap into the open bar with Finlandia vodka and Herradura tequila to shore up spooked nerves, as Los Ranchos Steakhouse tickles spines with peeled grapes, artichoke hearts, and other complimentary eats. Exhibits will be open to visitors before the Planetarium kicks off a laser show at 9 p.m. Event-goers can park at the museum for free, and each is asked to bring a new or gently used Halloween costume to benefit the Children of Charlee.

Since 1949, Miami Science Museum has trained young brains with a rotating stable of exhibits and events. Young Patron members will get unlimited museum admission to see exhibits such as Magic Planet—in which the Earth pulls a quarter from the moon’s ear—or the traveling Heart Smart exhibit, presented in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole. The museum also keeps an active social life; check the calendar of events page for upcoming goings-on.

Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science

The Patricia and Philip Frost Museum has spent most of its life outgrowing its digs. It debuted in 1949 as a children's museum, which took off quickly and soon expanded into the Museum of Science and Natural History in 1952. In 1960, it again needed more space and moved to its current site, and now an even larger space is being built, set to open in 2016.

But throughout all its physical changes, its mission remains the same, "We inspire people of all ages and cultures to enjoy science and technology, in order to better understand ourselves and our world."

  • Size: as of now, the site stands at 48,000 square feet; plans for the new space will expand that to 250,000 square feet over five levels

  • Eye Catcher: tour the Wildlife Center, where the staffers care for injured wildlife—specifically majestic birds of prey—and release them back into the wild

  • Permanent Mainstay: the Planetarium, where PBS's Jack Horkheimer: Star Gazer was filmed, boasts a 65-foot-diameter domed projection screen

  • Don't Miss: in the late afternoon, the planetarium hosts Legends of the Night Sky Laser Show, which teaches kids how to find constellations using lasers and Greek myths

  • Hands-On Experiments: in Nano, kids manipulate large-scale mechanisms as they familiarize themselves with the principles behind nanoscience

  • Special Programs: the museum’s Sea Lab features beautiful underwater creatures and coral reefs. Guests can get up close and personal as they reach out to touch a starfish or a sea urchin or have a cleaner shrimp nibble at their nails

My husband and I loved it! So much fun! Highly recommend.

Old yet added new,attractions. Amazing aquatic area i enjoyed it very much!
Alexia G. · October 17, 2014
It is a dense and detailed experience for a child, interacting with actual objects and trying out various experiments. The makeshift "classrooms" are set up well and the instructors are friendly and effective. The planetarium is a must. We plan to be back for an after-8 star observation (not possible to fit in one day with the experiments)
