Visit South Florida Science Center and Aquarium
The Science Center revolves around a simple premise: science is exciting! Science means adventure and exploration and we are delivering on this promise by providing schools, visitors and campers an entirely new set of science programming and tech ventures based on computer coding, robotics and other leading edge educational programs. These new programs have allowed us to educate more young minds than ever before, now serving over 215,000 students, teachers and visitors annually, including 75,000 through field trips and educational outreach into schools and classrooms.
We recently renovated our facility and updates included a complete re-construction of our 5,000 square foot Hall of Discovery, containing 30 new or rehabilitated hands-on exhibits, upgraded planetarium, new 1,000 square foot early childhood education room; upgraded theater, a new science laboratory and upgraded amenities. The third phase of our renovation is underway and we have big plans for a Science Center Campus project. Plans include an overlook boardwalk, new interactive outdoor exhibits, and a Conservation Miniature Golf Course. The Conservation Course, designed by Gary Nicklaus and Jim Fazio, is now open for play! We hope you will visit us in this next exciting phase of our journey.
The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is located at 4801 Dreher Trail North, West Palm Beach and is open Monday – Friday from 9am-5pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-6pm.
