About the Grand Opening

Thank you for your interest in the grand opening weekend for the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science.

From our state-of-the-art Frost Planetarium featuring one of only thirteen 8K projectors in the world to our vast three-level Aquarium, Frost Science will be one of the most dynamic and sophisticated science museums around the globe. Frost Science is more than a building. It is the embodiment of curiosity, investigation and an enthusiasm for knowledge that will inspire generations to come.
