Along with the roar of the earth-moving equipment, the two giant cranes, and the dust stirred by the hundreds of construction workers, Miami’s new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is rising out of the ground.
For more than 10 years this Museum has been but a dream — planned, budgeted and designed — it’s now beginning to take shape.
The new Miami Science Museum (MiaSci) will be to Miami what the Museum of Science and Industry is to Chicago, the Franklin Institute is to Philadelphia, and the list of great cities and their great science museums goes on and on.
Our Science Museum will boast a huge and amazing aquarium, a Living Core, a Gulf Stream tank, and a rooftop green garden area, among many other engaging exhibits. The new Museum will also have an innovative digital high definition planetarium that will invite viewers to explore the infinite cosmos and its distant galaxies.
For those of us who grew up around science museums this endeavor is a great leap forward, for Miami, for its future generations of local residents, and for its visitors. We have enjoyed a wonderful museum of science for decades that has served us well, but now we are in for something special and unique.
Along with its neighboring institution, The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), the new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science will bring new life to Miami’s bayfront area. These new institutions will dramatically transform Miami’s downtown waterfront, and the area will be a renewed place for people to visit and explore, and for future generations to take part in many educational experiences.
We produced this video presentation that showcases the progress that has been made at the Museum site, showcasing its construction, as well as some of the stimulating permanent exhibits that will be on display at its core.
We were delighted to offer our video production services to this amazing project pro-bono. I am pleased to be on the board of the Museum and excited about opening day.
