Time Out says

True to its mission, the new 250,000-square-foot museum connects people of all ages with science through a range of inspiring programming—some of which is even bilingual. The updated Frost Science (an upgrade from its previous Coconut Grove location) occupies four buildings—the Aquarium, the Frost Planetarium and the North and West Wings—features year-round exhibits such as “Feathers to the Stars,” “Power of Science” and “MeLab,” an interactive exhibit that lets kids learn about health by using their own bodies to conduct experiments (think hands-on simulations). The “Aquarium” is a remarkable display across three levels, one of which includes the museum’s 500,000-gallon Gulf Stream aquarium that houses all sorts of sea creatures. While the planetarium is a 250-seat, air-conditioned respite with an 8K projection screen and state-of-the-art sound system, offering dazzling visual displays and virtual tours through outer space.

Visiting Frost Science

The downtown Miami facility is open 365 days a year and is open to people of all ages.

What’s on

"Sherlock Holmes: The Exhibition"

  • Exhibitions

This interactive experience exposes people of all ages to the forensic science and history of one of the world’s most recognized crime-solving detectives. Short of taking folks across the pond, guests will be transported to Holmes’ London, where they’ll get to participate in a little sleuthing of their own. The exhibition comprises separate areas: Dr. Conan Doyle's Study, presenting the scientific and literary ideas that inspired the author to pen the exciting Holmes chronicles; a place for investigators to conduct their own detective work using a book full of clues; Sherlock Holmes in Baker Street, which puts guests right in the middle of the action at 221B Baker Street, London, where Dr. Watson and Holmes get to cracking; and an area for pop-culture enthusiasts to embrace all kinds of Sherlockian collectibles.
