Miami's Frost Museum of Science announces opening date

Long-awaited museum to open on May 8


MIAMI – The long-awaited new jewel of Miami's Bicentennial Park is set to open before the summer.

After months and months of delays, the Frost Museum of Science announced that its doors will open to the public on May 8.

An announcement ceremony was held Monday at the downtown Miami site. Tickets for the museum are currently on sale.

The 250,000-square-foot facility is divided into four buildings and combines a planetarium, aquarium and science museum on one campus.

The museum was originally scheduled to open in 2016, but construction delays led to the date to be pushed back.

Philanthropists Phillip and Patricia Frost helped cover costs after fundraising did not fully meet expectations.
