TBT (June 25, 2014) - 5 years ago the Frost Museum of Science was under construction before it was finally completed in May 2017. Groundbreaking occurred February 2011.
Located in Museum Park along with the Perez Art Museum of Miami, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science broke ground in February 2011.
The 250,000 square foot museum was designed by Grimshaw Architects and will feature outdoor landscape, a 600,000 aquarium, a full dome 3-D planetarium and cafes. Phillip and Patricia Frost generously donated $35 million to the museum in 2011.
Once completed, the science museum, art museum and museum park are expected to transform Downtown Miami into a cultural arts hub.
Construction is expected to be completed sometime in 2015.
