A decade in the making after relocating from its previous location in Vizcaya, The $305 million Frost Science Museum at 1101 Biscayne Blvd joins the growing list of arts and cultural venues in downtown such as the Perez Art Museum Miami, and the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts.

Animal Rehabilitation and Public Education

The Frost Science Museum will also be a place that helps local wildlife and educate the public. The museum rooftop houses a bird sanctuary named The Batchelor Wildlife Center, and accepts injured birds brought in by the public, aiding in their rehabilitation. The Science Barge is a floating laboratory located mere steps from the museum itself. Using cutting edge tech, it provides visitors a unique opportunity to learn about marine science and wildlife. The barge will be part of science programs that connect the public with research projects in addition to being an extension of aquarium and science exhibits.
