In 1949, The Junior League of Miami's "Project Finding Committee" determined that Dade County's children needed a science museum. The Junior Museum of Miami, a private non-profit organization, was established in 1950 in a house on the corner of Biscayne Boulevard and 26th Street. The Junior Museum expanded so quickly that in 1952 it was forced to move to the Miami Women's Club building on Bayshore Drive. It was then christened the Museum of Science and Natural History. During the last decade, the Museum has expanded to provide space for 4,000 member families, over 250,000 annual visitors, one of the largest summer science camps in the nation (ages 3 to 14) and countless additional exhibits, collections and activities. These two attractions share a facility in south Miami, near the entrance to the Rickenbacker Causeway. The Museum of Science has excellent displays on the Everglades and Florida’s coral reef. The kids enjoy over 140 hands-on exhibits. There are live demonstrations for educational fun. The Wildlife Center holds more than 175 reptiles and birds of prey. The Space Transit Planetarium was constructed in 1966. It offers astronomy exhibits, plus laser shows and interactive demonstrations of upcoming computer technology.
