Interested in checking out some new exhibits this summer? Miami has plenty of museums that are offering fun and unique exhibits for both kids and adults to enjoy. Here are a few of the top new shows to enjoy this summer.
Hurricanes at the Miami Science Museum
Now that we’re in the brink of hurricane season, it only makes sense for us to get prepared during this current Hurricane exhibit. Here, guests are able to not only see different artifacts from Hurricane Andrew, but will also get a chance to step into the cockpit of a P-3 Hurricane Hunter airplane.
Miami Children’s Museum’s Dino Island
Bring the kids to the brand new Dino Island exhibit starting with the opening day on June 8th. An exhibit that is fully geared toward dinosaurs will be up and running until 2014 showcasing a 2,5000 square foot space with robotic dinosaurs spread throughout. Visitors will also be able to see prehistoric fossils and learn about the common theory of the extinction of dinosaurs, all while opting for a photo session with the suspended Pteranodon.
From Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler
An exhibit created by jewelry collector Diane Venet, this collection of “wearable sculptures” can be seen from now until July 21st. These pieces that were made by some of the most well-known, sought-after artists of our time, shows not only precise beauty and craft, but displays a sense of romanticism as most items were specifically made for a lover, friend, or family member close to the artist.
