Miami finally gets its museum: The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science
Twenty years after it was conceived, five years after groundbreaking, after legal, political and financial woes, the long-awaited, 250,000-sq.-ft. Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is finally opened in downtown Miami’s Museum Park.
Among the museum’s most popular exhibits: The three-level, 500,000-gallon suspended Gulf Stream Aquarium, which hosts sharks, devil rays and other fish. It can be viewed from above on an open-air deck or from below through a 31-foot-wide lens. The aquarium explores south Florida’s ecosystem ecology and marine biology.
“I’ve never seen a fish tank anything like that size. It’s amazing,” says Timothy Houser, a sixth-grader who dreams of becoming a Navy Seal working in demolitions underwater.
