The Frost Science Museum is a gorgeous facility that makes it easy to engage in science. There are several exhibits (seasonal and what i believe are permanent) and a space specifically designed for young children. A ticket to one of three planetarium shows is included in the $29 admission. The exhibits are interactive and appear to be well cared for, as I did not see a single 'out of order' sign anywhere.
The Museum is also home to several aquatic animal exhibits, venomous snakes, and a few waterfowl. There were a variety if reef fish, corals, octopus, jellies, juvenile sharks, and rays in addition to many others.
Six floors may seem intimidating when you plan a day, but I was able to do pretty much everything (including a 30 minute planetarium show and eat lunch) in about three hours. I particularly liked that there was a mix of indoor and outdoor things to visit.
The Museum has a free app that you can also download to enhance your visit. I did not use it, so I cannot provide feedback on it. There is a gift store, a coffee shop, a cafe, and a food truck (reasonable prices). I was also surprised at how accessible the staff were for questions.
My only complaint is that parking garage is rather expensive when you add it on top of the admission. It's $8 for the first hour and $4 per hour after that. However, I am not sure that you could really find anything mich cheaper seeing as the facility is in Miami. Regardless, I do not regret parking there because of the convenience and my lack of familiarity with the area.
