Celebrates one-year anniversary with new exhibition and special events
Celebrate the “Power of Science” at The Philip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science as they introduce new exhibitions, programming and more to commemorate their one year anniversary. The museum first opened its doors on May 8th, 2017, and brought a whole new world of science and technology with it. Now, one year later, Frost Science is celebrating its first anniversary throughout the month of May with engaging activities, new exhibitions and more.
In just one year, Frost Science has welcomed several special exhibitions to its campus, including SPACE: An Out-of-Gravity Experience, BRAIN: The Inside Story, Monster Fish: In Search of the Last River Giants, SEEING: What Are You Looking At? and The Mechanicals.
The Power of Poison: From The Depths Of The Sea To Your Own Backyard, is a new exhibit that will open May 26th with bubbling cauldrons, slimy frogs, venomous bites—oh my! In the Hsiao Family Special Exhibition Gallery, The Power of Poison explores poison’s role in nature, human health and myth, while coming face-to-face with different poisonous and venomous species from South Florida and around the world. In an unprecedented move, the exhibition will extend to other parts of the museum in a full-fledged “toxic takeover.” The exhibition is supported locally by Jackson Health System and Florida Poison Information Center–Miami. The Power of Poison is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org), and will be on view from Saturday, May 26th, 2018 through Monday, September 3rd, 2018 inside the Hsiao Family Special Exhibition Gallery on the first floor of the museum.
