Frost Science Museum to be Completed by the End of the Year. Seriously.
Construction of the Frost Museum of Science has been a long, slow process, but according to the Miami Herald we are finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Due to a new funding plan put in place, and about $20 million in cuts to exhibits and features, construction on the museum is back on track to be completed by the end of the year. The fish will be put in the aquarium by October to give them time to acclimatize to their new environment, and the museum will open to the public by early next year.
Once the museum opens, its new director Frank Steslow will be firmly in place (Gillian Thomas is stepping down today), and the museum will have to do without a planned $4 million yearly subsidy from the county which has been reprogrammed into a $45 million construction grant. But Miami’s fantastic new science museum will finally be open, and hopefully that will make all the difference.
