Introducing the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science

Miami, FL: Construction on the $275 million, 250,000 square-foot Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science broke ground on February 24, 2012. We have a video of a virtual "fly-through" of the new educational facility, and it's jaw-dropping! The museum features many stunning design elements including a 600,000 aquarium.

According to the Miami Science Museum:

The Museum is structured around a lushly landscaped indoor and outdoor “living core” of terrestrial and aquatic spaces, featuring a 600,000 gallon aquarium facility, a full dome 3-D planetarium, interactive exhibits, innovative technology and two additional wings of exhibition space, learning center and cafes.

The 600,000 gallon marine aquarium will feature a large futuristic bottom viewing portal to give museum-goers a very unique perspective on the fish swimming above. Words fail to adequately describe the grand design of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.  Good thing we have many artist renditions and a video.


Advanced Aquarist is excited to see all the public support and funding for the many new and renovated science museums and public aquariums in recent years.  These institutions will fill children and adults alike with a sense of wonder and appreciation for many decades to come.  This is money well spent!

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
