“hundreds of interactive exhibits”

Bring the entire family for a day of exploration. Take a ride on the Everglades Airboat Adventure, enjoy the playful antics of river otters, experience hurricane force winds in the Storm Center, dig for fossils alongside a giant megalodon shark, and see exciting science theater shows. See sharks and the largest living Atlantic coral reef in captivity, hang out with bats, be charmed by a 12-foot snake, plus pet alligators, turtles and iguanas. Test your pilot skills in nine cockpit simulators and learn about Florida's amazing Everglades in the Living in the Everglades exhibit. Discover our place in aerospace at Runways to Rockets, our space exhibit, and take a simulated trip to the Moon or Mars. Make it a play date at theDiscovery Center, designed especially for children under seven.  No visit is ever complete without experiencing an IMAX film adventure on the five-story-high screen at AutoNation IMAX 3D Theater, home of the BIGGEST screen in South Florida. With an 80 ft. x 60 ft. screen and 15,000 watts of digital surround sound broadcast from 42 speakers, The IMAX Experience is truly an unparalleled fusion of sight and sound.  Don't forget to check out the Explore Store where you'll find lots of educational and intriguing games, toys and books and other unique gifts. At every turn, the Museum of Discovery and Science invites you to discover the scientific wonders of this world and beyond!
