Where Miami - - WHERE NOW -

AF­TER YEARS OF CON­STRUC­TION, The Phillip and Pa­tri­cia Frost Mu­seum of Sci­ence will open on May 8. “Vis­i­tors [will] get a glimpse of the best of South Florida and maybe this will in­spire them to ex­plore fur­ther,” says Frost Sci­ence Mu­seum pres­i­dent Frank Stes­low. And by the best, he means a mas­sive 250-seat 3D plan­e­tar­ium of­fer­ing laser light shows start­ing in June plus, an aviary, a three-level aquar­ium and hi-tech ex­hibits. Sci­ence lovers get ready to be blown away by the va­ri­ety of marine life in the half-ton Gulf Stream tank, which is home to black fin tuna, mahi-mahi, bar­racuda and scal­loped ham­mer heads. There’s also co­ral, beach­front and Ever­glades habi­tats with wildlife na­tive to the area. 1101 Biscayne Blvd., Mi­ami, 305.434.9600, frostscience.org –Re­becca McBane For more great mu­se­ums in Mi­ami, visit where­trav­eler.com
