Featuring more than 100 interactive exhibits, an immersive fresh and saltwater aquarium, full-dome digital planetarium, and a new Florida conservation-themed miniature golf course and science trail, the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium offers a mind-opening experience for all!
The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium will be closed effective Monday, March 16th through March 29th to support our nation’s efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes all exhibits, events, programs, and spring break camps. This was a very difficult decision for us to make since we take pride in being an educational resource for many, but the health and safety of our visitors, members, staff, volunteers, and community is our top priority.
