If there’s anyone in your family who finds learning in general, or science in particular, boring and boring, you have not yet been to the Fort Lauderdale Discovery and Science Museum. This is a museum with more than 200 interactive exhibits and special shows competing with Florida’s best attractions.
Promoting lifelong learning in science for children and adults through exhibitions and programs is the mission of this museum and they are doing so with great success.
An example of the novelty and ingenuity of this place is a special exhibition that is currently taking place. “Grossology, the gross science of the human body” uses animatronics and other interactive high-tech displays to humorously discover everything about the human body, including warts, pimples, fart, burps and the like.
The museum offers a combination of special exhibitions, such as the change of the Grossologie over the months and some permanent exhibitions. The permanent exhibitions will delight young and old alike. For example, the Runways to Rockets exhibition hall has a new 4,000 square meter aerospace station where visitors can learn how to enter a simulation booth. You can even create personal wings, enter an air duct and feel what flying means.
Another highlight is the Living in the Everglades area of the museum. Here you will find an 11,000 square foot outdoor path that illuminates Florida’s diverse ecosystems. The indoor exhibition features interactive kiosks that show the importance of the Everglades, the impact on the people of the Everglades, and the current efforts to restore a healthy state of the ecosystem.
The museum’s Discovery Center of Discovery Place Science was specifically designed for children under the age of seven. Here you can climb a tree, build a wall or make a sale and learn how the world is organized.
For the elderly, the section on Gizmo City explains how things work and how technology affects our lives. The highlight here is the virtual volleyball game.
A key feature of the museum of Discovery Place Science is a five-story IMAX cinema. The screen is said to be the largest in South Florida, measuring sixty times eighty feet. The sound experience is also spectacular: 42 speakers generate 15,000 watts of digital surround sound. A key feature of the museum is a five-story IMAX cinema.

You can even take home some of the fun of this museum by buying Explore in your store, where you can find games, toys, books, and gifts that express the museum’s themes.
The museum of Discovery Place Science is located in the Arts and Sciences District, across from the Riverwalk Esplanade Park and the Broward Center for Performing Arts in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The ticket price is a modest $ 10 for adults (less for seniors and children) and a good buy is the $ 15 ticket, which will take you to the exhibits and an IMAX movie show.
