At award-winning South Florida PR firm Durée & Company, we feel incredibly privileged to have worked with the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science for the past five years. Our relationship has not only proven to be successful, but our team members have many childhood memories of visiting the Museum – from summer camp to date nights at laser shows!
It is with mixed emotions of nostalgia and excitement that the Museum will close its doors at its Coconut Grove location, which has been home to the Museum since 1960, at 10 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 30. But don’t panic! The Museum will still be active in the community and has a variety of activities planned for August.
In summer 2016, the Museum will begin a new era by opening its new $300 million state-of-the-art facility in downtown Miami.
August activities at the current Museum include:
Saturday, Aug. 29 and Sunday, Aug. 30: Museum admission will be free for children 12 and under with paid adult admission. Families, many of whom have visited the Museum themselves as children and now visit with their own children or grandchildren, can enjoy special programming and activities, along with exhibits including “Amazon Voyages: Vicious Fishes and Other Riches,” “Hurricanes,” the “Under the Sea” photography exhibit presented by University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, Batchelor Wildlife Center, Sea Lab and Planetarium. On Sunday, Aug. 30, the Museum will stay open late, closing at 10 p.m.
Saturday, Aug. 29: The Museum will host Science Art Cinema, with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The event will explore the history and use of lasers. Located inside the Planetarium and Theatre, the event will feature films enhanced with live music, guest speakers and multimedia presentations. Ticket admission is $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
