Do you have a dinosaur lover? Then the Dinosaur Revolution Exhibit at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is a MUST!
The Exhibit itself runs through November 28, 2021, and includes a ton of interactive activities, including a fossil dig, rock-climbing wall, puppet theater, as well as a maze! And did we mention the life-sized dinosaurs? They, of course, have those too and they are sprinkled throughout the Science Center (inside and out) which makes for some fun photo ops and overly excited kids. In addition to the Exhibit, the actual Science Center has added some awesome improvements over the years, including a splash pad, outdoor mining area, and bubble zone, to name a few of the cool outdoor attractions (there is also an outdoor park that is accessible from the Science Center).

PRO TIP: Pop in to the Gift Shop when you arrive and buy a gem and fossil bag for the outdoor mining experience! As for the indoor offerings, there are 10,000 gallon Aquariums of the Atlantic, which house some of our native fish, scheduled Touch Tank experiences, and an indoor Early Childhood Playground, complete with a water table and wall-sized Lite Brite play area, to name a few of the cool play areas. There are also daily shows at the planetarium (FREE to Science Center members), which uses full dome video presentations on a variety of scientific topics.
We spent between 2-3 hours touring the Science Center and the kids have asked to return each day since we left – as a result we purchased the yearly pass for only $125, which allows access for 2 adults and up to 6 kids per household. If you plan on returning 3-4 times a year, this is definitely a good option and gets you up to 6 complimentary Mini Golf Passes to play on the new Florida Conservation Course , which is located outside the Science Center. Overall, the Science Center is definitely worth a visit this summer and would be suitable for kids of any age!
