Frost Museum of Science passes half-million visitor mark

After opening its doors to the public sixth months ago, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science has seen strong attendance, a spokesman said, resulting in an expansion of its planetarium shows and exhibitions.

“We’ve had an extremely strong response and warm welcome from the community,” said Rebecca Dorfman, a public relations manager at the museum. “Our visitor numbers from opening through Oct. 31 were 529,800.”

Have any of you been to the Frost Museum lately?
I ask because I'm reading the reviews on YELP and there are many negative reviews so far even though attendance seems to be doing well.

Another complaint is the cost of parking on site which is expensive. How do visitors not know that they can get there for free via the people mover?

People are dumb. The parking has been the same since day 1 with the PAMM. So many different ways to get there without parking on site.

Some good ol Miami racial politics to ruin a park

http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/downtown-miami/article203545174.html
This Miami park already has two museums. Does it really have room for two more?

Miami would rip up a chunk of downtown’s new Museum Park to make room for two county-backed museums honoring black Americans and Cuban exiles under a plan that would add a pair of buildings to the green space surrounding the county’s existing art and science museums.

The plan, backed by Miami-Dade commissioners Esteban “Steve” Bovo and Audrey Edmonson, would dramatically remake Museum Park, a city park that opened in 2014 as the grassy, shaded backyard for two county-funded museums on the nearby waterfront: the Pérez Art Museum Miami and the Frost Museum of Science.

The Museum Park proposal was designed to solve a fight already under way over the museums, which had hoped to claim a nearby waterfront public lot behind the AmericanAirlines Arena known as “Parcel B.” On Tuesday, county commissioners were set to vote on an agreement for placing a Cuban Exile History Museum on Parcel B. But with that plan facing an uphill climb, the legislation is on hold as the various sides try to reach a deal on building the nonprofit facilities on Museum Park.

I hate this so much. Can they please leave green space green?! Wtf. There’s no need for yet another Cuban Museum. How about using undeveloped county/city own land? Use School board land, Miami Dade College land but leave that greenspace alone.

That park is pretty much an empty lot of grass with a name on it. A cluster of museums sounds good in my book. Hopefully they approve a great design and not just make them look like a high school prison.

who doesn't believe in Global warming so why would he deny money for Baywalk unless he thought it was going to be underwater in the future?
