The Miami Science Museum is a new 250,000 sf science museum in Museum Park in Miami, Florida. The site is approximately four acres, immediately adjacent to a four-acre parcel that will house the new Perez Art Museum Miami. Both buildings and their grounds are within the approximately 28-acre Museum Park in downtown Miami, and the two new institutions will sit atop a new joint parking structure with a plaza linking the two museums.
Key components of the new Miami Science Museum include a 35,000 sf aquarium, a planetarium, and approximately 30,000 sf of indoor and outdoor science exhibits. The aquarium is planned to be one of the iconic elements of the Museum, visible from the exterior, and spanning all the floors of the Museum. The planetarium, one of the centerpieces of the current Museum, will expand its technology and its programs. It is strongly desired to have the flexible museum exhibits both indoor and outdoor to take advantage of the climate, and the possibilities that outdoor exhibits bring to the site and the museum experience. A highly sustainable building is planned, including LEED rating, to reduce energy costs, and to act as a showcase for the latest energy management and control technology.
