Description

The mission of the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is to "open every mind to science" through the strategic programming of interactive exhibits, engaging community-based camps and events. The Science Center features more than 50 hands-on educational exhibits, an 8,000 gallon fresh and salt water aquarium, a digital planetarium, Conservation Research Station, Florida Exhibit Hall and an interactive Everglades Exhibit showcasing the richly diverse ecosystem that the Everglades water-environment supports. The Science Center was recently named the “2014 Non-Profit of the Year” by the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches, “Best Museum in Palm Beach County” by the readers of South Florida Parenting Magazine and “Best Reinvention” by the readers of Palm Beach Illustrated Magazine.

Mission

The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is a non-profit educational institution. Our mission is to open every mind to science.

History

The South Florida Science Center was founded 52 years ago when the County’s population stood at 240,000. Today, our 60-mile service region – including Palm Beach, north Broward and Martin counties – totals almost 2 million people. In the last four years, we’ve changed our name to South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, doubled attendance, doubled operating revenues, doubled our program offerings and doubled the size of our physical space. Last year, In recognition of the progress we’ve made, we were named “Best Non-Profit in Palm Beach County (Arts and Culture)” by the Chamber of Commerce, “Best Museum in Palm Beach County” by South Florida Parenting Magazine, and one of three finalists for the Providencia Award for contributions to tourism in the region.
