Museums and attractions for children in Miami

CHILDREN’s  MUSEUM 

On Watson Island, located on the road that connects Miami International Airport, MIA, with Miami Beach, we find this beautiful and fun space that recreates everyday life and where children enjoy a variety of modules that arouse their curiosity and creativity.

Trip in Cruise, Bank, Supermarket, Health and Wellbeing, Castle of the Dreams, Port of Miami, Art, Music and even a center of pets, are some of the areas that make up this museum in which the children participate in an interactive way.

 

PHILLIP AND PATRICIA FROST MUSEUM OF SCIENCE 

This technological and futuristic structure is a universe full of adventures for all members of the family. Planetarium, aquarium, the evolution of life on the planet, exploration and discovery of the Everglades ecosystem, animal species of Florida, are some of the areas that are part of this modern science museum.

For example, we recommend you to visit the exhibition on the development of the human brain that will be available until April 15, 2018. It is a fascinating space because children have the opportunity, interactively, to discover the scientific advances of neuroscience that  has clarified that brain structures recognize and process, in addition to emotions, thoughts, revealing the human power to re-educate the mind.

Every Friday enjoy laser shows, a stimulating experience for your children.

MIAMI ZOO 

To the south of the city we find the famous Miami Zoo, located in more than 750 acres of land, it is a huge area inhabited by 500 species, in total three thousand native animals of the five continents.

The administrators of the park have managed to recreate the natural habitat of these creatures, so your children will be surprised to be part of the Amazon rainforest or the African plains. In fact one of the activities is associated with feeding giraffes and why not a camel ride. Selfies are a must on this trip.

You can not miss the Zoo tour through the monorail system that offers beautiful panoramic areas of the park.

 

MIAMI SEAQUARIUM

Key Biscayne is the home of this reservoir of marine life, which in turn is a research center on the evolution of species, which strives for the care and rehabilitation as well as the insertion of many animals in their natural habitat.
