Join us on Friday, November 16 as we celebrate the world of science in honor of the Thanksgiving season and stay open late for members. We’re giving thanks to science and most of all – our members! You’ll have exclusive access to Frost Science exhibitions* from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and have the chance to enjoy specially-themed activities such as:

  • Baby alligator encounter: come face-to-face with a vital member of our local wetlands on the Royal Caribbean Vista level of the Aquarium
  • Spark of Science demonstration: Reflecting on and sharing what or who we are thankful for has many positive benefits. These physical and mental health benefits can include higher levels of optimism, improved sleep, lower blood pressure and even a stronger immune system. Close your eyes and think about how you would complete this sentence: “I’m thankful for…”, write it down and reap the benefits!
  • Stargazing on the rooftop Observation Deck: Starting at 8:00 p.m., gaze at the sky with volunteers from the University of Miami Astronomy Club (weather permitting)

Members will have access to select museum exhibitions in addition to receiving a 20% discount at the Science Store until 9:00 p.m. Food and beverage will be available for purchase in the Main Atrium by Constellation Culinary Group.

Special Laser Friday Discount:

Make it a total experience by booking a laser show before they sell out! Members will receive 20% off Laser Fridays tickets on this day and on the third Friday of every month. We’ve got a lineup of shows gracing the Frost Planetarium screen including Stranger Things, The Beatles and That 80’s Laser Show and more. (Please note: Laser Friday shows are not included in the Member Evening—you may purchase your tickets online prior to the event).

Admission to Member Evenings are free and only open to members and their guests. Pre-registration is requested but not required. All members must have a valid membership and ID.
