In 1949, The Junior League of Miami's "Project Finding Committee" determined that Dade County's children needed a science museum and one year later the Miami Science Museum was founded. This museum features a rotation of exhibits providing tangible experiments for children of all ages to revel in the wonders of science.
This museum's increasing popularity has led to the need for a new facility, and a massive new building is set to be located in Miami's Museum Park, opening in 2015. Meanwhile the current center is still open to visitors and offers everything from planetarium shows to wildlife encounters.
