On the last Friday of every month, the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium hosts a themed “Nights at the Museum”– a family friendly opportunity to enjoy extended hours of the Science Center’s typical offerings as well as a chance to view the night sky through the Science Center’s observatory. Once monthly, weather permitting, the Science Center opens its observatory dome, which rotates to allow for the best views. Guests will be treated to craters, comets and galaxies visible by the telescope.
Monthly “Nights at the Museum” events run from 6pm – 9pm, with the observatory remaining open until 10pm, and every month there is a different theme. Activities often include arts and crafts, animal dissections and dry ice experiments.
With a new mission to “open every mind to science,” the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium features more than 50 hands-on educational exhibits, an 8,000 gallon fresh and salt water aquarium- featuring both local and exotic marine life, a digital planetarium, conservation research station, Florida exhibit hall and an interactive Everglades exhibit.
